Change of Executive Board meeting times
In order to allow more individuals to be able to attend the HGA Board meetings, we will now meet the first Tuesday of the month at the current time of 8:30 AM and the third Tuesday of each month will be at 5:00 PM. This will be for the months of January through May and then September through December. Hopefully, this will be better for those who want to attend the meetings. All are welcome.
"Christmas at the Train Station" a big success!
After having to cancel last year's "Christmas at the Train Station" events, people were anxious to help Historic Georgetown Association celebrate this Christmas season. Approximately 250-300 adults and children showed up over the three day event. Santa was visited by a total of over 90 children, as they shared with him their Christmas wishes and received a gift packet. Boy Scout Troop 95 assisted HGA volunteers and the final event on Saturday, December 18 was catered by Marilyn's Catering. A special thanks goes out to Grace Choir of Georgetown and to Tim Sweetman of the Millsboro Chick fil A for supplying chocolate chip cookies and little Chick fil A cows for the children. HGA wants to thank those who volunteered over the course of the three events and we appreciate the public's support as we celebrate this Holy time of the year.
Nice turnout for first week of "Christmas at the Train Station"
On Saturday, December 4, approximately 30 children got to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas, as a crowd of approximately 70 people in total came to the festivities. Attendees got to enjoy Santa and his Elves, write letters to Santa, view the model trains, take rides on Lil Toot, look over the various displays, and enjoy the treats while Christmas music filled the air. You are cordially invited by HGA to attend "Christmas at the Train Station" this Saturday, December 11 from Noon to 2 PM and the following Saturday, December 18 from 5-7 PM. Admission is free and Santa will be there both times to listen to the children's requests.

Georgetown Community Clean Up Day
Historic Georgetown Association's complex at the corner of Depot St. and Layton Av., was chosen as the focal point for a special event that brought the whole community together. The Georgetown Community Clean Up Day was a rousing success despite the rain showers that cam in the afternoon. Various community groups and individuals spent the morning cleaning up trash and other items throughout Georgetown. Then they met back at the HGA complex for food, live entertainment, rides on Lil toot and fellowship. See our pictures of this event!
