SHARON — Residents and visitors joined together at Sharon Town Hall for the annual Community Christmas Gathering Nov. 25. Among the highlights of the evening was the presentation of the Sharon Township Heritage Society Appreciation Award, which was given to retiring Medina County Sheriff Neil Hassinger. He is shown at top right with John Leach, Sharon Community Park Board president.

Leach is also shown at left top as he lights the township Christmas tree in the gazebo on Sharon Circle.

Those who attended also enjoyed singing carols. Maggie Price, 7, of Sharon, who is pictured at left bottom with her father, Frank Price, was one of the voices that joined in.

Attendees also enjoyed the sounds of the Highland High School Choral Group, which is shown at right middle at the gazebo. Santa Claus visited the students on their bus before heading back to the school, as pictured at right bottom.
