WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Many Waynesboro residents think it's a shame that much of what made this summer's two-month long, 52-event Bicentennial Celebration great can't be repeated for another 100 years.
Allie Kohler, bicentennial coordinator, is suggesting that a mini-festival be held in Waynesboro every three years.
Greencastle Pa., about 10 miles east of Waynesboro on Pa. 16, has been holding a triennial celebration since 1902. Called Old Home Week, the next one will be held next summer and will be the last for the 20th century. Planning is under way for that event, Greencastle officials have said.
"We'd like to keep something going here. We're hoping the spirit of the bicentennial will continue. We want the community to stay involved. We were all surprised at the support the bicentennial received and how many people turned out for the events," Kohler said.
