Miss Whitehall 2009 lights the Whitehall Christmas Tree. Reported by Dianne Garrett for WCRX-LP.


Whitehall Mayor John Wolfe wished a heart felt Merry Christmas to all who attended the December 1 holiday city lighting ceremony. He made it clear that his wish was for a Merry Christmas, even if others feel it is politically incorrect. Holiday revelers were treated to cookies and warm beverages by the Whitehall Community Celebration Association.

Throwing the switch this year was Miss Whitehall 2009, Danielle Crosier, who is an eighth grade student at Rosemore Middle School. The petite Danielle soon realized that she could not reach the switch, so Mayor Wolfe assisted her with a grandfatherly lift, to the delight of attendees. Pictured just beyond Crosier and Wolfe is Whitehall Yearling High School band director, Chris Herrmann. The high school band provided Christmas music for the event.

Pausing for a cute picture with the snowman at city hall were Megan Euton, 9, and siblings, Connor, 6 and Madison, 8.

Councilwoman Leslie LaCorte held her granddaughter, Abella Bishop, who was blowing kisses to the baby, Jesus, in the city's manger scene.
