The event, sponsored by the City of Hagerstown, M & T Bank, Antietam Cable and WQCM/Dane Broadcasting, drew about 300 people. Public Square was filled with the sound of holiday classics performed instrumentally by the North Hagerstown High School Brass Ensemble and vocally by dozens of youngsters from Girls Inc.

For the next 20 minutes 11 actors from Jefferson High School emerged from behind the screens to tell a story about substance abuse, using slapstick humor and audience interaction to make the lesson more palatable.
