‘Winter Festival on the Hill’ Saturday

The Whitehall United Methodist Church has long been open for sledding and other snow sports during the annual Winter Festival.
This year, the church on the hill on Greenmount Cemetery Road is the center of it all.

When the Rev. Ginny Deyo got word that the festival committee had decided to take a year off and resume the event in 2012, she immediately put the word out that everyone was welcome at her church, which sports a pair of sledding hills and has plenty of room for snowshoeing and general romping about.

“We’ve always tried to offer sliding, and now we want to offer everything we can to the community,” Deyo said. “It’s a family event, and we hope everyone will come and join us.”

The “Winter Festival on the Hill” will run Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include a sledding and sliding party, snowshoeing, tubing, free hot chocolate, soup and coffee.

There will be a bonfire, and visitors can also warm up in the church hall.

But the event will not really end at 2 p.m.

There will be a short break, and from 4 to 6:30 p.m., the church will present a “Saturday Supper Buffet” that will include a variety of casseroles and comfort food, along with dessert. The price is $8 for adults and $5 for children.

For further information on the event or the dinner, call 499-0851.
