Snowmen brought to life in Boonsboro
Lots of homes sure are looking festive.
If you enjoy the holiday displays, don't miss the Flat Frosties adorning the streets in town, brought to you by the Boonsboro Town Council and various merchants and individuals around town.
It's fun to see the creative ways snowmen have been brought to life.
My favorites are the shepherd at the west end of town, and the crazy beautician with the hair dryer powered by Christmas lights.
Girl Scouts, Brownies fill shoeboxes with gifts
Girl Scout Daisy Troop 40124 and Brownie Troop 40169 of Boonsboro shared the holiday spirit by filling shoeboxes for Hearts of Love at Good Shepherd Ministries.
Dottie Stover, a member of Good Shepherd, coordinated the event.
The girls used money earned from last year's cookie sales to purchase and donate 100 bars of soap, 100 washcloths and additional supplies.
The girls hope to make it an annual event.
