Louisville neighborhood makes their home the troops' homes for the holiday [Germantown/Schnitzelburg]
The Germantown-Schnitzelburg neighborhoods have been hailed as neighborly places, at least by me, and the community is taking the opportunity to broaden their boundaries to include military personal stuck in Louisville for Christmas. The neighborhood will provide army trainees unable to go home to their families with food, games, gifts, and company, and they’re calling on everyone for support.
People will gather behind the Antique Mall with signs and cheers to welcome the troops to their Christmas homes on Christmas Eve morning (Friday morning). Those interested are asked to come around 9:30am as the troops are scheduled to come by 9:45am. Veterans will be on site to pass out mini American flags, and hot chocolate has been promised, too. No one is asked to bring gifts or anything, but to simply greet the men and women with smiles, cheer, and Christmas spirit.
