Merry Christmas….

On behalf of the entire staff, how small it may be, I want to extend a very MERRY CHRISTMAS to each and everyone.  I wish for save journeys, wonderful memories with family and friends during the holidays.  kittanningonline looks forward to offering many new and great stories, little known facts, and cherished memories about our town, Kittanning in the coming year.

As this is the first Christmas in several years that isn’t quite as white as ‘Bing’ sang about, I leave you all with this great scene from the ‘Great Snow Storm of 1950.  This is what the citizens of Kittanning, as well as countless others folks in Western Pennsylvania discovered as they woke from their Thanksgiving sleep on Friday, November 24, 1950.  I do not have the actual measurements from this storm, but I have heard many stories from area residents about that ‘White’ Friday!!!!     MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!
