Darkened during the Carter Energy Crisis, Auburn's landmark Genny sign will be back on tonight.
On Saturday, as part of Auburn’s annual Founders Day celebration, the renovated sign will be lit up for the first time since the mid-1970s. State-of-the-art LED lights have been installed to replace the original neon tubes.
Genesee Brewing's rent for the sign's location included sending a case of Cream Ale to the building's owner every month. More in the Post-Standard.
