Overview

The result of an Eagle Scout project by Mechanicsburg Area School District graduate Sheldon Rodgers, Mechanicsburg dropped its first wrench on New Year's Eve in 2004. The galvanized steel wrench commemorates the borough's founders — mechanics who settled in the area to make and repair wagons that were traveling west after crossing the Susquehanna River in the early 19th century. The town celebrates the New Year from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. with the annual drop of a wrench in front of the Washington Fire Company at 53 E. Main St.

Activities include a kids' program, live music, refreshments, and a silent auction.
