First Annual Lighting of the Lake

and Surroundings

We need your help!

Who would like to participate

in making our town a magical place to visit

December 2nd - January 2nd?

We are asking property owners to place a lighted tree

or decorate their docks and surrounding areas.

Let's make Findley Lake light up!

Lighting from you decks would require an extension cord and a timer set from 5PM - midnight from December 2nd - January 2nd, making the Lake look like a magical winter wonderland over the holidays.

Please contact Nancy Sonney at 814-881-9118, owner of Secret Cubby with questions.

Nancy would love to know who is participating, give her a call or stop in the Secret Cubby! Thank you.

Let's make Findley Lake even more magical with holiday lights!
