GREENCASTLE, Pa. ? Thousands of people crowded into Center Square in Greencastle on Friday for the illumination of the borough's Christmas tree. "Here in the heart of our community comes this evergreen tall and strong," said Paul Schemel, vice president of the Greencastle Borough Council. It was the official kickoff of Greencastle-Antrim's Heritage Christmas celebrations, which continue throughout November and December. As people arrived on the square, they were greeted and handed bells by members of Greencastle Brownie Troop 981 who were dressed as Santa's elves, and Heritage Christmas Committee members in Victorian-style dress.

Doing what Leather had to do included taking over as squad leader during the Battle of the Bulge, said fellow grand marshal and WWII veteran Fred Wishard, 79, of Hagerstown.
