Where you will find WJTL New Year’s Eve

December 29th, 2017

LISA LANDIS~ What are you doing New Year’s Eve?  Are you taking in one of the local New Year’s Eve gatherings?  Or maybe you are staying home with food and games?  No matter what your plans, Phil & I hope you can join us for the Top 100 Countdown 4-midnight.  Phil will be counting down WJTL’s Top 100 songs of 2017.  I will be driving the KCB Cookie Car to many of the New Year’s Eve events happening in our community.  Here are a few of the happenings in our community that I plan to visit:

Rissers Mennonite Church in Elizabethtown the film All Saints showing at 7pm. All are welcome! Refreshments and fellowship will follow the movie.  All Saints is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett) and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them and their tiny church. FMI 717-653-4549

Christ Lutheran Church and the Winters Heritage House Museum-  The family-friendly event includes free food and beverages, games, crafts and music. At 7 p.m. a star will be raised behind the church to welcome in 2018 in honor of Elizabethtown’s sister city, Letterkenney, Ireland. Winters Heritage House Museum, 47 E. High St., Elizabethtown and Christ Lutheran Church, 125 E. High Street, Elizabethtown

Celebrate the New Year throughout the day at The Hershey Story!  Jim Rule will perform kids programming on the Hershey Story’s front patio from 8:00 – 9:30PM.  He will be joined by the Hershey’s candy characters at 9:00 PM and will conclude his program with a bubble wrap stomp. hersheystory.org
