Many helped to make Burnham party a success

To the editor:

On behalf of the Burnham Lions Club and children of the Burnham area I would like to thank all those who assisted in making the annual Burnham Lions Club Halloween Safe Night a tremendous success. Despite the rainy weather approximately 150 children visited the Lions’ Community Building for the event.

Special thanks goes to the following area businesses and organizations which contributed items to be distributed to the children, games or money to make the event successful: Burnham Borough and Mayor Loyce Harpster, Dunkin’ Donuts – Burnham, the Giant Food Stores in Burnham and Lewistown, Citizens Bank Burnham Branch, The (Lewistown) Sentinel, Boy Scouts of the Shawnee District, Vince’s Pizza and Family Restaurant in Burnham, the First National Bank Burnham Branch, Hartley’s Potato Chips, McDonald’s restaurants in Lewistown, Mifflintown and Newport and Ned Kauffman.

Personally I would also like to thank all those members of the Burnham Lions who worked tirelessly to make sure that the Burnham Lions Community Building was properly decorated for Halloween and who helped distribute items to the children on the evening of the event.
