Holidays are on the way

The Examiner
The Independence Square Association will host the annual Square Lighting during a virtual event at 6 p.m. Friday, which will be shown on the group’s Facebook page @independencesquare. Workers set up wreaths and more than one mile of lights around the Square over the past few weeks. The historic Truman Courthouse will also be lit up. The family of Doug Cowan, president/CEO of the Community Services League and Square Association board member, will flip the switch in front of the Courthouse Exchange restaurant. Unlike past years, there will not be a street closed off and chairs set up for the ceremony. Blue Ridge Bank & Trust Company and Holiday FX helped sponsor the event.
