Newville Borough Council’s Quality of Life Committee and the Newville Area Events Committee held a Christmas Wreath Sale last month that helped to benefit two Newville area nonprofit organizations. The Quality of Life Committee, chaired by Councilwoman Joey Diehl, sold wreaths to the public thanks to support from Vicki Alwood of Conifer Hills Tree Farm. After expenses, $500 was raised. On Dec. 29, Diehl presented a $250 check to Shani Holleran Shenk of the Big Spring Area Food Bank. Diehl and President Scott Penner are also pictured presenting a check for $250 to Clarence ‘Mike’ Fry II of Neighbors in Christ. Diehl was pleased to report that due to the overwhelming success of the event, and the many favorable comments received, the Christmas Wreath Sale will return in 2021.
