The Greencastle-Antrim Heritage Christmas tree will come to life in the square on November 19 with strings of glittering “Lights of Love” shining “in honor of” or “in memory of” loved ones throughout the Christmas season.
The Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce and Blaise Alexander Chevrolet of Greencastle are proud to offer community members the opportunity to purchase a light on the tree and dedicate it to a loved one whose name will be displayed on scrolls in the square. The lights will be revealed at this year’s annual Tree Lighting ceremony on Friday, November 19 at 7 p.m., sponsored by Herald-Mail Media with support from the Borough of Greencastle and Antrim Township.
“I’m glad the Christmas tree lighting tradition can be held again this year after last year’s hiatus,” said Debby Cunningham, executive director of the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce. “The ‘Lights of Love’ sponsored by the community not only enhance the beauty of the tree but also give it a special meaning.”
“Lights of Love” can be purchased online at GreencastlePaChamber.org/Christmas, at the Chamber office located at 217 East Baltimore Street or by calling the Chamber at 717-597-4610. The cost is $8 for one name, $15 for two names or $20 for three names. Each additional name is $6. In order to be included on the scroll, your Lights of Love form must be completed and returned along with payment to the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce by November 10, 2021.
The names will be beautifully scripted on decorative scrolls which will hang in the large corner windows of Growing With Music on the northwest corner of the square and the Fran Kenawell State Farm office on the southeast corner of the square. When registering, you can also choose to have an acknowledgement card mailed to your friend or family member at no extra charge.
For more information, call the Chamber office at 717-597-4610 or visit the Chamber’s website at GreencastlePaChamber.org/Christmas.

The Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce (G-ACC) is pleased to announce the 2021 recipients of the James P. Oliver Award: Ron and Barb Nicarry. The Nicarrys are known for their service to local organizations and generous support of community activities.
Ron’s career was spent working at Grove Manufacturing (now Manitowoc) and Barb worked as a nurse at local hospitals. After retirement, they owned and managed the Hillcrest Restaurant for several years before deciding to fully retire, which allowed them time to continue their involvement in local activities.
For more than 50 years, Ron has been a member of the Rescue Hose Company where he’s served as president and is currently a trustee. He is also the past master of the Mount Pisgah Masonic Lodge. Barb has been a Cub Scout leader, past president of the Loyal Daughters Association, and actively involved in the former Greencastle-Antrim Lioness Club.
The Nicarrys generously support many local activities, such as the ambulance fund through the Rescue Hose Company as well as providing the Old Home Week fireworks display for the community’s enjoyment. Mr. Nicarry pointed out that he “loves to see the fireworks and is happy that Greencastle can enjoy it too.”
The Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce presents this award to honor business associates who, through their company, contribute personal time and service beyond normal community service. The first award was presented in 1992 to James P. Oliver posthumously, and it has been known as the James P. Oliver award since that time. Mr. and Mrs. Nicarry join a long list of Greencastle residents who have given their time and talents to the betterment of the Greencastle-Antrim community.
The couple, who will soon celebrate their 58th wedding anniversary, has two sons, Rick and Curt, and one step-grandson. They reside in the Borough where the award was presented to them by G-ACC Executive Director Debby Cunningham. “On behalf of the Chamber of Commerce, we thank you for your contributions to our community. Your love for Greencastle is evident by your generosity and service,” said Cunningham as she presented the award to the Nicarrys with their family in attendance.
