Lights should illuminate at once

By Staff | Sep 23, 2011

As our town begins to launch the Shepherdstown250 Celebration, I am reminded of the white lights that always outline the buildings on German Street beginning sometime before Thanksgiving and coming on at different times.

Wouldn’t it be spectacular if it could be arranged for all those lights to be turned on at the same time on the first day after Thanksgiving? If all the businesses or building owners could agree on that and make it happen, what a glorious way it would be to usher in not only our traditional Christmas celebration but also our recognition of the long history of our special town!
