The Shoemakersville Area Lions Club installed Christmas lights throughout Shoemakersville on Saturday, Nov. 26.
The members of the Lions Club involved were President Brian Maroney, Irwin Levan, Gary Rothermel, David Geschwindt, Pat Daly, Harry Sproesser, and James Seifert. They were assisted by Justin Wall, from Wiring by Wall, who supplied and operated a bucket truck, used in hoisting the Christmas lights up to Chris Klein of Shoemakersville, who installed the Christmas lights. Chris Klein also was assisted by his son Alex, a student at Hamburg High School.
The Shoemakersville Area Lions Club not only installs the Christmas lights, but also pays for the electric used by the Christmas lights.
