Prior to the lighting of the township Christmas tree, songs of the season were performed followed by Santa Claus’ arrival, riding high above an Aston Township fire truck.

The winter festival, which was held inside the community center gymnasium, was organized by the township recreation committee and featured a magician, arts and crafts, ornament making, pictures with Santa Claus, and visits by several Disney Princesses including Belle, Cinderella and Snow White.

Upon entering, children received a goody bag filled with a brightly decorated cookie, and other items.

Refreshments included pretzels in the shape of a candy cane, hot chocolate, cookies, lemonade, and water.

The winter festival committee was chaired by Kit Spayd and included Alma Carroll, Florence Fisher, 2nd Ward Commissioner Carol Graham, and a countless number of volunteers.
