Community Raises Funds for New Christmas Lights

LEWISBURG, Pa. -- A community is working to get some lights back on in Lewisburg.

A GoFundMe has been started to raise money for new Christmas lights downtown.

Earlier this week, the borough announced the lights are in bad shape and it can't afford to replace them.

About $2,000 has already been donated toward the campaign's $60,000 goal.

    $60,000?!?! The Borough secretary said it would cost $50,000 in a previous article. Folks, I don’t want to sound like a Scrooge, but Lewisburg is a VERY affluent town (Bucknell University, where the sophomores drive nicer cars than most people will ever have). It’s not like they didn’t know that the lights needed replacement, or that Christmas wasn’t coming in December. They dropped the ball on this one and didn’t budget for it. Lewisburg residents pay big taxes, time for town management to own up to their mistake.
