Area residents can add a touch of historic Newtown to their Christmas trees with special edition Greater Newtown Exchange Club (GNEC) holiday ornaments on sale starting November 26.  Each year’s edition features a notable Newtown landmark.  This year’s ornament features the historic Brick Hotel located at 1 E. Washington Avenue in Newtown.

GNEC sells these ornaments with the generous assistance of local merchants as a charity fundraiser.  They can be purchased at five First National Bank & Trust locations: the Main Office on State St. in Newtown and at the Newtown-Yardley Road, the Wrightstown, the Langhorne and the Washington Crossing branches. The $10 ornaments will also be sold at Newtown Hardware House, McCaffrey’s of Newtown, Acme of Newtown, and Countryside Framing located at 2 South State Street. In person sales locations will include State Street and 7 Eleven in Newtown.

In the past twenty years over $80,000 has been raised via GNEC ornament sales and donated to local charitable organizations such as Family Services of Bucks County, A Woman’s Place, Network of Victim’s Assistance (NOVA), Interfaith Housing, Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired and Pickering Manor.

The Greater Newtown Exchange Club is a Bucks County service club dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and the support of youth and family services.  For further information on ornament sales leave a message at their 215-469-1466 call box or if you wish to know more about GNEC, you can access their Facebook page or check out their website at www.newtownexchangeclub.org.
