It was perhaps the only social event of the day Thursday in Harrisburg - or anywhere in the Midstate, for that matter. It was a "shovel event."
The Old Uptown Neighborhood Association got their shovels and took to the streets to clear cars and sidewalks for people who might not have been able to do it themselves.
Quite a good turnout, estimated at 15 to 20 people.
"It was really quick to get people together," said Katy Halter, the Social Chairperson of the group. "We decided Tuesday night at our neighborhood meeting that we'd do this, and we posted on Facebook, created an event and handed out some fliers just last night."
"To tell you the truth, I'm not sure of the entire turnout," said president Joe Laubach, "because everyone has already fanned out into the neighborhood, and they're probably out on other blocks that we don't even know are out there participating."
