City Employees, Businesses Made Holiday Change Work

Nov. 4, 2019 Editor, The News-Gazette:

Downtown trick-or-treating is a tradition that Main Street Lexington proudly coordinates each year.

The event was rescheduled for Nov. 1 due to potentially dangerous weather. Making this last-minute change required significant effort and cooperation. The interim city manager, Lexington Police Department, fire and rescue, City Council, public works, and Alert Rockbridge went above and beyond to make it happen. Please join me in thanking these folks for their great work.

I’d also like to extend my gratitude to the downtown business owners who were so willing to “go with the flow” as the plans changed. Each business spends hundreds of dollars on candy so local kids can have a fun, safe, and memorable experience. Their community spirit is greatly appreciated.


Main Street Lexington board president,

Mom of two grateful trick-or-treaters
