We all owe a big "thank you" to the Lehigh Valley Erectors and Ironworkers Local 36 for volunteering their time and talent to erect Easton's Peace Candle this year.

We were concerned that the Peace Candle might not be in place this year, but according to LehighValleyLive.com, "Dan Schaffer, vice president of Lehigh Valley Erectors, said Ironworkers Local 36, which was founded in Easton, was happy to offer its services. 'We feel we owe Easton something and we're happy to be back, 'Schaffer said."

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ... in Easton, Pa.
