Kimball to lead Dickens events

Lifelong resident of Ebensburg named to serve as grand marshal

John Kimball will serve as grand marshal for this year’s 16th Annual Dickens of a Christmas to be held this weekend in downtown Ebensburg.

Kimball will do the honors of flipping the switch at light-up night in Kimball Park at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 3, and will ride in the annual Christmas parade at 11 a.m. Saturday.

Kimball, a lifelong resident of Ebensburg, retired in 2011 from the family business — L. Robert Kimball & Associates — after working there for nearly 50 years. He has since started two new business ventures that are keeping him busy, Kimball Motion Analytics and American Family Health.

Kimball has served on the Ebensburg Public Library Board, the Johns Hopkins School of Education Advisory Board and has worked with Saint Francis University School of Education.

Dickens of a Christmas events will be held in various locations throughout downtown Ebensburg and include breakfast with Santa, a gingerbread decorating contest, outdoor movie night with hot chocolate and holiday light displays.
