  • Borough Hall and the Lititz Police Department on South Broad Street were a blue beacon of community unity last Friday night, the day after five Dallas police officers were killed and nine others injured during a protest over two fatal black civilian shootings by police in Minnesota and Louisiana earlier in the week. The emotional display of blue lights was set up by Stray Production Services. "We saw this small gesture as an act of solidarity with them, just to say, 'Hey, we believe in you and will stand with you as you walk through these dark days,'" Melody Strayer said of her company's tribute to local law enforcement. Lititz Police Chief Kerry Nye said he and his officers were deeply moved by the display, and they appreciate the strong community support. Photos by Dennis Bicksler
