Ligonier Valley Historical Society plans annual holiday festival

The 32nd Ligonier Valley Historical Society’s Festival of Lights is 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Dec. 6 – 9 in the community room of Town Hall.

The event features more than 50 trees, wreaths and centerpieces, available to purchase.

“The items are all uniquely decorated and donated by individuals, businesses and organizations from around the Ligonier Valley,” said Theresa Gay Rohall the society’s executive director. “They reflect the originality and creativity that abounds in the region transforming the community room into a beautiful winter wonderland display for all to enjoy.”

This year the festival will feature a miniature train display, provided by the Ligonier Valley Railroad Association and vintage toys by friends of the society.

The merchant raffle will feature baskets, gift certificates and other items are donated by local Ligonier merchants. Tickets are 12 for $10 or $1 per ticket.

In addition to the merchant raffle, there will be three additional fundraising opportunities.

• For a donation of $25 to the wine raffle, donors will receive one of 24 bottles of wine, and their name will be deposited for a drawing to receive two tickets to a Steelers game in December.

• Twisted Vine Eclectic Market has donated a giving tree for a special raffle. The raffle features gifts created by local artisans and a lottery tree with a $50 bill attached to the top.

• Bids will be accepted for a silent auction featuring a painting of a winter scene of Ligonier.

All drawings will be made at the close of the festival. Winners will be notified by phone.

Admission to the festival of lights is $4 for adults and $1 for children 3 to 6. Children 2 and under are free.

A festival preview party will be held 6:30 to 9 p.m. Dec. 5. Cost is per person $30 for members; $35 for non-members.

Tours for groups of 10 or more people are available. Call 724-238-6818 for more information or to schedule a group tour.

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.
