Light Up Night in Export will not just have residents looking forward to the holiday season this year.

It will also serve as a nod to the borough's past with the unveiling of two historical information plaques throughout town.

Borough councilwoman and Export Historical Society member Melanie Litz said the Dec. 1 event will include the unveiling of composite plaques at the borough building as well as Master Auto Supply, which at one time was the company store for the Westmoreland Coal Company.

Litz said the plan is to identify plenty of historically significant sites in the borough , and provide residents with information about the town's past.

The next two signs will mark the Italian American Club, which was the coal company's former boiler house, and Duff Manor, which was once the Duff School.

Light Up Night will be held downtown at 7 p.m.

This holiday season will also include a storefront decorating contest, sponsored by the J.M. Hall Jr. Community Trust.

Entries are due by Light Up Night on Dec. 1.

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.
