Bushy Run Battlefield to host children’s colonial Christmas party

Joe Napsha
Alli Saunders, 10, of Irwin, places cereal, popcorn and fruit on string while creating the decorations for the Christmas tree at the 2018 children’s colonial Christmas party at Bushy Run Battlefield in Penn Township. The children’s colonial Christmas party will be held Dec. 7.

Children will be able to experience a colonial style holiday celebration at the Children’s Christmas Party, which will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 7 at the Bushy Run Battlefield, Route 993, Penn Township.

Attendees will make natural Christmas decorations and decorate the Bushy Run Christmas tree that will be planted on the battlefield grounds. Children will spend time playing a variety of colonial games and will be able to take home an ornament they will decorate.

The event costs $5 per child and will conclude with the arrival of a “special guest” who loves seeing children at this time of year. Participation is limited to 30 children.

Reservations are required. Contact Bushy Run’s secretary, Marlene Sawayda, at 724-744-4193 or [email protected]

For more information on the Christmas party, visit Bushy Run’s Facebook page or website, www.bushyrunbattlefield.com.

The Bushy Run Battlefield Heritage Society Inc. is sponsoring the event and all proceeds go towards the preservation and operation of the battlefield.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
