Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce is offering lamp posts for adoption this holiday season.

The Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce is again inviting area residents to adopt a borough lamp post for the holidays.

Individuals, organizations and businesses making a minimum $20 donation can help make the lamp posts memorable with holiday greetings, dedicating them in memory of a loved one, or in honor of a loved one, according to a release. The personalized message will be attached to a gift tag on a decorated lamp post.

About 40 lamp posts will be available for adoption.

Project proceeds will benefit chamber initiatives, according to a spokesperson.

Deadline is Nov. 14.

Those interested can contact the chamber office at 120 E. Main St., Ligonier, in person or by phone. Participants are asked to have gift tag details ready at the time of donation.

The chamber requests volunteers interested in helping to hang the tags from 10 a.m.-noon Nov. 16 also call the chamber to register.

Details: 724-238-4200 or

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
