It looks like things are getting better, and it's nice to see that the students are pitching in. From the Daily Item:
Brady Fisher, owner of The Towne Tavern, on Sixth and Market Street, was effusive in his praise of how the community helped him on Thursday.
“I don’t know their names,” he said Friday, “Bucknell students, the high school booster club, hundreds of people helped me evacuate and remove almost everything from the Tavern in 25 minutes. A neighbor timed it. Every piece of furniture, everything on the wall was taken out and put in a truck, and driven to safety.”
Friday, at 9 a.m., the entire Lewisburg booster club came back and set us back up. “It was incredible,” Fisher said. “I don’t even know how you thank those kind of people. It was just hundreds of people. And the Bucknell people, they were out running on the street and they just were helping people. You didn’t even have to ask them. The entire men’s Bucknell lacrosse team, all 25 of them, came and helped me on Friday.”
(But if I were a cynic, which of course I'm not, I'd wonder if there was any personal motive for helping out a tavern.)
