8B The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, September 27, 1990 ii ii FROM THE MAYOR'S DESK By: lhL Gainer, Mayor City of Lewisburg Although the 1990 version of tile city's "First Night" will be only the tenth such celebration, It has quickly become a mean- lngful and traditional occasion. It is a time to bring our towns people and our children together for the opening of the Christmas season, for the tree lighting, and to share in the true meaning of Christmas. It has been suggested that the site be moved from Andrew Le- wis Park to the grounds of Car- negie Hall. Such a move would eliminate the safety hazard con- nected with throngs of people standing along busy U. S. Route 219 and of young people darting across the road. The grounds of Carnegie Hall are quiet and beautiful and would probably better accommo- date expansion or growth of the celebration than Andrew Lewis Park. On the other hand. An- drew Lewis Park has been the site from the beginning apd the decorations are appropriate for the main entrance to town. While the decision has not yet been made. I think it would be interesting to try the Celebration at Carnegie Hall this year to evaluate the advantages and dis- advantages. A large evergreen tree will be planted and deco- rated at Andrew Lewis Park to "light" the entrance to town, but First Night would be held at Car- negie. Please fill out and return the following questionaire to help the organizers reach a decision: cut along dotted llne --11 prefer First Night at Andrew Lewis Park. [--~I prefer First Night at Carnegie Hail. '-'] I would be willing to try First Night at Carnegie for evaluation. ~It really doesn't matter if a tree at Andrew Lewis Park is also decorated.
