Burnham Lions thank Safe Night supporters

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. Approximately 360 persons 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, the Giant Food Stores in Burnham and Lewistown, the Boy Scouts of Shawnee District, Vince’s Pizza and Family Restaurant in Burnham, the First National Bank-Burnham Branch, Hartley’s Potato Chips, the Miss Central Pennsylvania Scholarship Pageant especially Miss Central Pennsylvania’s Outstanding Teen Abby Traxler, the Mifflin County Regional Police, Weis Markets in Burnham, Burger King of Burnham, Esh Orchards, S&S Trash Service, St. John’s Lutheran Church in Lewistown, Barnabas Brothers, The (Lewistown) Sentinel 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.
