Story At The Woman’s Club
Everything to make the luminaries was donated. Bowen, wife of Catasauqua physician Dale T. Bowen, cr timberland shoes edits him for the donation of the paper bags and candles, and Rock Hill Materials Co., Catasauqua, for the sand.
“Maybe next year we’ll make luminaries for two bridges, if the re timberland shoes sponse is good,” the club president says.
The women have the luminary making down pat.
Several women use plastic red, white and blue scoops to put sand in the 8 pound test bags that are 13 inches high and 6 inches wide. Into each bag goes 3 pounds of sand.
To ensure that the bags have equal amounts of sand, each one was weighed on a small, white kitchen scale.
“This is scientific,” says June Kline of Catasauqua, one of the women helping weigh the sand.
The sand is piled on a vinyl tablecloth. The women use six five gallon buckets of sand t timberland shoes o make the candles.
While the women are busy working like elves, they chat and sing Christmas carols.
The luminaries will be stored at the club until they are ready to be placed on the bridge by club members, volunteers, family and friends.
The idea to place luminaries on the bridge originated with Bowen and her husband. They were talking about having luminaries at their house, and the su timberland shoes ggestion was made that “wouldn’t it be nice if everybody on Pine Street put out luminaries.”
