A fundraising effort is underway to pay for enhanced lighting and other holiday decorations for the downtown area.
Downtown Springfield, Inc., the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce, Springfield Green and Maldaner’s Restaurant are all taking part in the fundraising drive. Victoria Ringer of DSI says the joint private-public effort will make the holiday season brighter downtown for years to come.
A fundraiser will be held next Wednesday from 5 to 7pm at Maldaner’s downtown. Donations are also being accepted through the Chamber of Commerce.
