Installation now underway
New pedestrian-level lighting to be installed on Penn Avenue
|Installation of lighting bases
|New Penn Avenue lighting will be similar to this light
Installation is underway for the new street lights promised for Penn Avenue in the commercial business area. Over
the last week or two, crews have been preparing the sites where the lights will be located.
pedestrian-level lights are more aesthetically pleasing in appearance and of a smaller scale than the street lights currently
in use. The lights should enhance the experience of people who are driving, biking and walking through the neighborhood.
new Penn Avenue lights are similar in style to the ones used on Lyndale Avenue near City Bella and Kensington Park.
Boo Blast at
Lunds and Byerlys was a blast!
|Face painting fun and costumes
Lunds and Byerlys held its annual Boo Blast Halloween event on Wednesday, October 28 at the Richfield store. Fun activities were placed
throughout the store as kids came in costumes ranging from super heroes and cartoon characters to critters and space aliens
-- just to name a few.
Activities included cupcake decorating, pumpkin decorating and face painting.
You could just feel the excitement with all the smiles and laughs. Plus, kids could find treats as they strolled the aisles
in their creative costumes.
Thanks to Lunds and Byerlys for hosting this fun event in the neighborhood.
It truly was a blast!
