Photo Submitted By - Greg Gobleman Keeping the Lights On By Greg Gobleman The Chestnut Street Lights committee wishes to thank all of those who have donated to help keep the lights and meters on. We have had a few personal donations. I know that others are talking with their neighbors about joining together to sponsor a pole. Every little bit helps, and it's appreciated. I should also mention that we have received a dona- tion in the recent past. Personal thanks were given, but the former local Civil Defense group turned over funds that they had kept for many years since governmental Civil Defense was disbanded. They saw a need and they offered help. The Chestnut Street Lights committee also wishes to thank the GEO Committee for their generous donation. They are a hard working group of folks who most of you will know when you see them doing a Movie In The Park. But they also work on the flowerbeds and the monument sponsor bricks when time permits. We need to also think the Aetna Township for the generous donation. Their donation was to specifically cover costs associated with the pole light at Armstrong Park and the meter access for the Logan County Health Department's H.O.EE. Mobile, which comes to town and provides some health care for the local people. Thanks to all! Attention: Lake Fork Gels! Like to reminisce and have a good chat with old friends? Meet at Mt. Pulaski Christian Church Family Life Center (across from Post Office) at 11:30 Tues. Oct. 26. Bring your own sack lunch. Drinks and dessert will be furnished. Mark your calendar and hope to see you there! Questions?... call Pat Depoister 792-5496 - Janet Deibert 792-3946 - Carol Lowe 796-3554.
