Jonesboro Mayor asks business owners to assist again with Christmas Lights

Town of Jonesboro Mayor Leslie Thompson is calling upon local business owners once again for assistance in decorating their locations for the annual Christmas Lights Festival. Thompson recently issued the following letter. 

Dear Downtown Business Owner:

My, how time flies! We are already at mid-year, the point where we begin to think about and plan for Christmas in the Town of Jonesboro. For the last two years, we called upon local business owners for assistance, many of whom graciously put up the lights on their own buildings. The Town assumed responsibility for lighting up the boulevard, provided lights to those businesses who requested them, and town employees (in their off time) assisted business owners with putting up lighting. Somehow, despite our economic woes, we got the job done! Thank you for whatever role you played in making it happen for Jonesboro.

We would like to decorate the town this year and are once again asking that each business owner assist us in this undertaking. My hope is that working together we can make Christmas in the Pines at least equal to last year’s or perhaps better, something we can all be proud of. If you have ideas on how we might make Christmas lighting all that it can be in Jonesboro’s lighting celebration we are open to hearing your suggestions.

Thank you for cooperation in helping to decorate and for your interest in our town. May God bless and keep us all.
Mayor L. Thompson
