Linglestown Gazette: What to drop on New Year’s Eve?

Wednesday, December 26, 2007

What to drop on New Year’s Eve?

Towns across the Harrisburg region drop stuff to mark the start of a new year …

Shippensburg – anchor
Lewistown – bag of potato chips
Dillsburg – dill pickle
Hummelstown – lollipop
Harrisburg – strawberry
Lebanon – bologna stick
Strasburg – ping-pong balls

It would be fun to hold a celebration in Linglestown. What would be an appropriate object to drop? Please submit ideas by submitting a comment.

Other stuff …

State Rep. Ron Marsico reminded me today via e-mail that Farm Show week is fast approaching; Pat McLaughlin, the longtime Colonial Country Club golf professional who retired just over a year ago, experienced a fall at his home and passed away Saturday from those injuries and subsequent complications. He was 53 years old.

Noodles! Flagpole? Although I like the "something different" theme...everyone would google linglestown to figure out why in the world we drop a giant marshmallow

yeah, hot wings. It's the only thing that makes sense in Linglestown. Just do it.

Hershey isn't doing the Kiss Drop again this year? Didn't go last year, but it just seems something like Hershey would try to keep going on.
As for Linglestown, perhaps use a fruit after one of the alley's in the village, like Blackberry.

St. Thomas Roasters could sponsor a coffee bean drop.

How about the Pletz brothers flying machine? (George and Christ Pletz attempted to fly a home made flying machine in 1828 that resulted in the death of George, and injury to Christ.)
