Columbus Commemoration On Courthouse Square
SCRANTON — The Columbus Day Association of Lackawanna County held its annual wreath-laying at the Columbus statue in Scranton Monday morning.
About a dozen people showed up for the 105th year of the event at Courthouse Square.
The organization is dedicated to “remembering and honoring” Christopher Columbus.
Something different this year was a man dressed like Columbus to oversee the ceremony.
The group held its annual dinner Sunday night. Money raised went to charity, including the St. Francis of Assisi kitchen in Scranton.
