All through town, there will be displays, open houses, and musical and vocal performances. Santa will be at Town Hall. Docents will be in town wearing a Santa hat to answer questions.

Softball on the way

Softball is coming to Halfway Little League in the spring and will include the Halfway, Clear Spring and Conococheague districts. Halfway is asking to hear from girls ages 7 to 12 who are interested. Go to and fill out the girls softball survey form.  This is not a registration, but a survey that will help the league plan for the first season.

Students conduct successful food drive


Last week, the students and staff at Clear Spring Elementary School held a collection for the Clear Spring Food Bank and The Salvation Army. Students brought in almost 3,000 food items, including canned and packaged food.

The food was divided between the two organizations, with the Clear Spring Food Bank receiving 1,309 items. Mrs. Delaney's second-grade class brought in the most food, which earned them a pizza party, provided by CiCi's Pizza in Hagerstown.

Did you know?

Did you know that during World War I Clear Spring had a community room which provided a place of recreation for soldiers who were stationed at the Clear Spring Proving Grounds? They canned many quarts of vegetables and fruits that were sent to various camps for soldiers. The room was also used for letter writing, reading and playing games.
