HIT: To the annual Salvation Army community Thanksgiving dinner.
This tradition at the Salvation Army's downtown Auburn facility exemplifies the generosity and caring spirit of our community. Every year, many volunteers happily give some of their time on this holiday so that everyone has a chance to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.
On this day after Thanksgiving, we thank the men, women and children who help make this great event happen.
MISS: To the need for the city of Auburn to make $30,000 to $50,000 in repairs to a piece of infrastructure that's going to be gone in a couple of years.
The North Division Street bridge replacement project is on the books for 2017, but city officials learned this week that the bridge has deteriorated to the point that some emergency work will be needed to keep it safe until then.
Unfortunately, this type of infrastructure problem is far too common for communities throughout the Northeast.
HIT: To the start of the winter sports seasons for our local student-athletes, and to the achievements of all of the fall sports participants.
On Thursday, The Citizen's sports department kicked off its fall sports all-stars and MVPs series. At the same time, many of our local schools have started playing their first games of the winter season in sports such as basketball, hockey, wrestling and volleyball.
HIT: To the Auburn Public Theater, for reaching a significant milestone.
APT next month will mark its 10th anniversary of providing performing arts of all types in downtown Auburn. This facility has grown from a small budget run by an all-volunteer staff to a major entertainment venue in central New York.
Kudos to Carey Eidel and Angela Daddabbo and all of the other APT leaders who have worked so hard to make this venue into what it is today.
