Santa Claus is coming to Kinsale

Posted on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 at 9:28 am

Each year, hundreds of caring gestures add up to a flood of kindness on a very special weekend that includes the first Saturday in Kinsale, when the spirit of the season takes wing to benefit our less fortunate neighbors. This year, the event will take place from November 30- December 1.

It is a day full of music and laughter, of love and sharing, as the clipclop of horses’ hooves and the scents of Christmas cookies commingle with the flavors of oysters prepared every which way.

Last year, the community’s incredible generosity generated $9,369.63 for local charities including Christmas gifts distributed through Westmoreland County Social Services and WRAR Christmas Wishes, as well as contributions to The Haven and the Food Pantry at Ebenezer Methodist.

If you can’t be there on the day, you can still contribute. Elegant, beautiful, useful items (including cakes, bread, pickles, jam, and pies) are needed for the silent auction on Dec. 1 to benefit the needy. Donators are asked to have non-perishable items at the Kinsale Museum by Thanksgiving weekend.
