Santa Claus Parade
The Mount Carmel Lions Club sponsors Mount Carmel's annual Santa Claus Parade.
The parade is held on the first Saturday in December and begins at 11:00 AM.
Here are some pictures of the 2015 parade.
Borough Christmas Tree
The Mount Carmel Lions Club continues their tradition of supplying and setting up the borough's Christmas tree.
The Lions Club would especially like to thank Charlie McAndrew's Auto Sales for the use of the lot, Lions Warren Altomare of Family Medical, Inc. & Frank Zaleski for supplying the lights.
Members of the committee are (from left) Lions Frank Zaleski, Warren Altomare, Perino Bevivino, Tony Candelora, Dave Berezovskie and J. Kevin Jones.
Here's a photo showing where the club set up the tree on Third & Oak Sts. back in the 40s and 50s.
HOLIDAY DEER DISPLAY
The display is located on the southwest corner of the town park (right next to the Anthracite Fire Company). There will be two deer again this year, usually a doe and a fawn. The deer will be delivered sometime on the Friday morning after Thanksgiving by workers of the Lake Tobias Wildlife Park of Halifax, PA and will stay until around January 2nd.
A "Name the Deer" contest will be held so watch your local newspaper for instructions. Cash prizes of $25.00 each will be awarded to the 2 best names.
The deer will be fed shelled corn and alfalfa hay. The public is not permitted to feed the deer.
Special thanks go to the Jones Family for donating the corn and alfalfa, Divine Redeemer Church for the hay, and Jack Williams and the Anthracite Fire Company for supplying the electricity for the Christmas lights, and all the local merchants, civic organizations, and concerned citizens who donated the money to make all of this happen.
Lions J. Kevin Jones & Warren Altomare are the co-chairman of the deer display.
Any donation will be greatly appreciated.
