Light Lawrenceville Blue.jpg

Lawrenceville officials are encouraging residents and business owners to turn on blue lights outside their homes and businesses nightly from Sunday until May 16 to show support for people working on the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lawrenceville is inviting residents and business owners to turn the city blue each night, starting this weekend, in honor of people working on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The annual Light Lawrenceville Blue effort will begin Sunday night, and continue nightly through National Police Week, which is May 10-16. Residents and business owners are asked to install blue light bulbs outside their homes or businesses and turn them on nightly during the effort to show support for health care workers and first responders.

Anyone interested in participating in effort who does not have a blue light can purchase an LED one at the drive thru at Renasant Bank, which is located at 141 Hurricane Shoals Drive in Lawrenceville.

Sales of the lightbulbs, which will cost $10, will begin Saturday, and proceeds will benefit the Police Benevolent Fund.
