Hanover Area Eagles Draw Worldwide Attention with “Eagle Cam”
In December, the Pennsylvania Game Commission partnered with several businesses and Friends of Codorus State Park to install a camera in a tree overlooking an eagle’s nest. The eagle cam streams live on the web, allowing viewers to watch events including an adult eagle bringing two chicks into the world and struggling to keep them warm and safe during the rough winter months. According to a Pennsylvania Game Commission news release, more than a million visitors have watched the eagle cam. Watch live at www.pgc.state.pa.us.

Art Adorns State Theater
Hanover High School students’ individual artistic talents bloomed into a new mural in front of the State Theater on Frederick Street. Inspired by Art teacher, Marie Smith’s idea, each student painted one segment of Amish patterns and together they created a colorful quilt. Teachers, administrators, the HHS National Art Honor Society and those involved in coordinating the theater’s artwork contributed to a team effort.
