David Eberhardt said his holiday decorations are inspiring others.
David Eberhardt is leading a revolution along Silver Farm Court—a Christmas revolution. More and more of Eberhardt's neighbors are decorating their homes for the holidays, this year more than ever, he said. "One house put up lights for the first time in five years," Eberhardt said from the front yard of his glowing Perry Hall home. "This year, I even decorated the deck. Most people around here who did their decks, they did it because I motivated them." "I'd like to be like 34th Street [in Baltimore], where people line up to come here," he added. Eberhardt's display includes several inflatable Peanuts characters, a reindeer, a snowman, thousands of LED lights, light-dripping icicles and a loop of Christmas music. Vote for your favorite …

The Perry Hall United Methodist Church Food Pantry and the Helping Hand Food Pantry in Upper Falls distribute food to struggling families.
After more than 35 years in the banking industry, Margaret Hubbard was experienced with money. Soon after retiring, however, the 63-year-old found herself gravitating toward those in short supply of it. Since October 2010, Hubbard, a Perry Hall resident, has devoted her time to working at the Perry Hall United Methodist Church Food Pantry. "I said to the pastor, I wanted to do something where I felt like I was helping somebody else, and this is where I found my niche," she said. Hubbard is one of several volunteers, mostly retirees, who work at local food pantries serving families and individuals who struggle with hunger, despite living in relatively affluent communities. Through the recent economic downturn, Perry Hall has continued to …

Tucked away in a residential neighborhood on Gerst Road, the Perry Hall Community Hall has been bustling with shoppers since Friday.
