Seven-year-old Madison Hartman inched forward on the piano bench to reach the keys so she could play “Mulberry Bush” at Saturday's Performathon to benefit the Cumberland Valley School of Music. After giving a flawless performance, the young musician from Shippensburg, Pa., dashed off the stage at Wilson College's Thomson Alumnae Chapel while the crowd still was giving her a rousing round of applause. Playing in front of an audience wasn't a bit nerve-wracking for Madison. “I wasn't scared at all. I'm happy,” Madison said after her performance.

There's a scene in the movie “It's a Wonderful Life” where George Bailey runs along the snow-covered Main Street in fictional Bedford Falls shouting, “Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!” People are everywhere. Families walking, couples holding hands. People are shuffling off to church, home or to pick up a last-minute Christmas gift. I remember years ago asking my father about that scene. “Was it really like that?” He nodded and explained how Main Street in Waynesboro, Hagerstown, Chambersburg and thousands of other small towns in America once bustled with activity every day except Sunday.
