Bushy Run to hold children’s colonial Christmas party

Joe Napsha
River Young, 4, of Trafford, receives a Christmas tree ornament to hang from her mother, Jessica Young, on Saturday, Dec. 9, 2017, during the Colonial Christmas party at the Bushy Run Battlefield visitor center. Children age 4 to 12 made Christmas ornaments from pine cones to decorate a tree that will be planted on the battlefield grounds at a later date.

Children can sing and dance to traditional Christmas and colonial music and make a variety of Christmas decorations at the Children’s Christmas Party from 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 8 at the Bushy Run Battlefield along Route 993 in Penn Township.

Youngsters will be able to decorate the Bushy Run Christmas tree that will be planted on the battlefield grounds. Participants also will be able to take home a clay ornament that they will decorate. Santa Claus is expected to arrive at the event, as well.

The cost of the program is $5 and participation is limited to 30 children. To make the required reservations, contact Bushy Run Battlefield’s secretary, Marlene Sawayda, at 724-744-4193 or [email protected]

Proceeds go to the preservation and operation of Bushy Run Battlefield.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
