Saturday's Candlelight Tour, sponsored by the Port Deposit Heritage Corporation, was graced by perfect weather for a change and lots of folks were seen strolling up and down Main Street.
Tour Chairwoman Lois Ashworth said she was pleased with the turnout and Board Treasurer Patsy Grace reported a busy day selling tickets in the Bank Building. Dennis Bolen brought the street carolers back this year and Santa made an appearance at the Presbyterian Church. George Maldeis, Maggie Jackson and Beverly Narvell met lots of tour-goers while selling tour tickets at the Paw Paw Museum. Thanks to all those who patronized, worked or donated to this year's tour, especially the folks at Port's Apothecary for supplying the lovely poinsettias scattered throughout the "open for tour" buildings.
