West Frankfort crews hang holiday decorations

Roger Stanley supervises as Jimmy Edwards and Jeff Woolard hang decorations with the help of Kent Earnheart and Foreman Larry Presley operating the backhoe.

On Tuesday, West Frankfort Street Department crews began the task of hanging Holiday decorations throughout the downtown area. The city took over the decoration duties from the Chamber of Commerce earlier this year.

Volunteers had traditionally put up the decorations early on a Saturday morning. Workers are expected to meet this Saturday as well – if needed.

“The Street Department is trying to help volunteer efforts by getting an early start, this year,” said Street Dept. Commissioner Tara Chambers. “Our city has owed such debt to those who turn out on a traditionally cold morning to work hard so that others may experience the lighted scene down Main Street.”
