Christmas lights a glow on the Lawrence County Courthouse this year

BEDFORD – The Lawrence County Commissioners approved a request presented by Jessica Staggs, on the Christmas Committee to add the tradition of lighting up the courthouse with Christmas lights.

“We want to thank you for allowing us to purchase a few more Christmas decorations and we would like to put Christmas lights back up on the courthouse or at least outline the building,” Staggs said.

There will be no drilling into the limestone to secure the lighting, Staggs added.

“No county money will be used to purchase the lighting,” Staggs added. “The money needed will be raised through donations or fundraisers.”

Those interested in donating funds to decorate the courthouse can contact Auditor Jessica Staggs at the courthouse or call 812-275-3111.
