"Light UP Putnam" Campaign Ignites


“Light UP Putnam” Campaign Ignites!

The Town of Putnam is committed to responsibly investing in its Future and in collaboration with the Putnam Business Association’s Beautification Committee, Announces an UPGRADE ON THE DOWNTOWN HOLIDAY LIGHTING.  “Light Up Putnam” begins with Phase 1: a lighting up of Main Street.  An LED skyline will cross Main Street on both sides; in Union Square and on the Montgomery Ward side, paired with fresh new holiday banners.    Phase 2 will brighten even more sections of Downtown, including Rotary Park.  Replacing the more than 15-year-old Holiday Lights is long overdue and… COSTLY.

“Light Up Putnam” is holding its KICK-OFF Fundraiser on August 12th in Rotary Park during the Wooden Horse Concert beginning at 6 pm and River Fire to follow at 8 pm.  Mrs. Claus, along with many Elves and LIVE REINDEER! will be there to spread warm Holiday Cheer and to collect donations to “Light Up Putnam”, which can be made using a debit or credit card or with a check (made payable to Town of Putnam with “Light Up Putnam” in the memo) or cash.   All Donations are welcome!
