Light-up event was a success

To the editor:

On behalf of the Steubenville Beautification Committee, I would like to thank the members of our committee and their spouses for standing in the cold in order to serve free hot dogs, drinks and treats to 560 grateful citizens during Steubenville’s light-up night.

We couldn’t have done it without the generosity of the Spot Bar, Steve’s Fish and Chips, Downtown Bakery, Appliance Depot, Motorcycle Memorial Foundation and Chairman of the Boards Outdoor Advertising for supplying all of the food. I would also like to recognize the wildly popular nutcracker face painting by Lorena. There were few children attending the event that didn’t have their faces painted to resemble the beloved nutcrackers.

Again this year, the children were well behaved and polite. They waited their turn, thanked us and many wished us a Merry Christmas. It was our pleasure to help make what has become one of the city’s best-attended events of the year.
