JOHNSTOWN — “My husband, Richard, is a woodcarver,” wrote Janice Alt of Elton. “We buy antique wooden mashers and rolling pins and he carves pictures on them. Every year we put the wooden mashers on the fireplace mantle. On the mashers he carves Santa heads. On the rolling pins he has put Santa, Rudolph, poinsettias and snowmen. They are all one of a kind. He has been carving now for 20 years or more.” Throughout the month of December, The Tribune-Democrat will publish photos and stories of favorite decorations submitted by readers. The decorations will be featured on the front page. Those not published will appear on our website. To participate, send your photos and information to Arlene Johns at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to The Tribune-Democrat, P.O. Box 340, Johnstown, PA 15907.
