Christmas in the Park was held on Sunday, December 14, 2008 beginning at 1:30 p.m. with a parade starting at the High School, down Green St. to Patriot's Park.
Santa arrived around 2 p.m. He was there in his own area to greet the children. They received gifts and goodies and much more.
Thanks to all that participated.
This is a combined effort of the City of Nanticoke, Civic Pride Committee, South Valley Chamber of Commerce, The Firefighters of Nanticoke, and L.C.C.C. volunteers that were there to help.

Our Halloween parade was held @ Nanticoke City Hall on

Yard sale, hunt helpers lauded
Times Leader

On Oct. 6, the Nanticoke Civic Pride Committee sponsored another citywide yard sale with a treasure hunt. More than 250 people participated in the sale and more than 350 maps were given out. Many of the participants were from out of town.
The yard sale is not only for our citizens to sell their items, but a chance to meet neighbors and people from all over. It also gives people a chance to see our beautiful city and what we have to offer, not only now, but in the future.
I want to thank:
• the Nanticoke Civic Pride Committee, Mayor John Bushko, Yvonne Bozinski, Theresa Sowa and Betci Cheshinski for their help.
• the girls in the city tax office who accepted phone calls and made our maps and lists.
• Dave Alberola from Emjaze Marketing Inc. for donating his bench sign on Main and Market streets.
• the Salvation Army, which sent one of its trucks to take usable items.
• The Times Leader for its well-written stories about the yard sale.
• Nanticoke citizens, who know that our city is growing stronger each day.
The Civic Pride Committee not only works tirelessly on the yard sale but on other community activities such as our upcoming children’s Halloween parade. It will be held for Nanticoke children from 2 to 4 p.m. Oct. 27 and our Santa Parade and party will be held in December.

Nanticoke Yard Sale and Treasure Hunt

Great Yard Sale was a great success
Editor: Citizens' Voice

The first annual Nanticoke Citywide Yard Sale which was held on September 16 and 17 was an overwhelming success. We would like to thank the many people that assisted in making this a success. They include: Betsy Cheshinski and all the girls in the Treasurers Department at Nanticoke City Hall that helped with the numerous phone calls, Karen Dougherty who was at Patriot’s Park at 7 a.m. each day passing out maps and directories and entertaining the crowd and AllState Insurance who assisted in making copies of the directories when we ran short at 10 a.m.
Also, a thank you goes to the South Valley Chamber of Commerce, and Mayor John Bushko for all their help. And, thank you to the local press for their wonderful coverage of the event.
A very special thank you goes to the people of Nanticoke for their participation in making the first annual yard sale a success.
Watch out for “The Great Nanticoke Yard Sale Part II” coming to Nanticoke next year!
