— LEWISBURG — Bucknell University’s annual Neighborhood Thaw Out in the Lewisburg area will be held April 5, from 3 to 5 p.m. and April 6, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.

“The groups will be working in downtown Lewisburg at different businesses and organizations,” said Lynn Pierson, assistant director for community service at Bucknell.

“This gives the students, downtown businesses and organizations an opportunity to come together in very positive interaction. Most of the Thaw Out projects are cleaning, painting and mulching.”
