New for the 2015-16 Season

In 2015, we are planning some wonderful additions. The shop will be turned into a glowing American flag in support of all of our troops and service members. We have also expanded our driveway to permit for safe vehicle passage. While this past year brought in a large amount of donations, we also had a lot of damage done to our driveway and property. Thank you to Duininck Companies for responding to our call for assistance and helping us with this expansion. If time permits we are also looking at adding some new additions around the ice skating rink….stay tuned for more details to come☺ As always we want to make your night special, so if you have any requests, please let us know.

Thank you again for making this fundraiser for the Salvation Army successful and helping us celebrate the birth of our Savior.
May God Bless You,

How Your Support Helps

We enjoy sharing our love for the holiday season with our friends, neighbors and others through the magic of holiday lights.

For the last 7 years, we have been doing a Christmas light display at our house. It started out as something that we really enjoyed doing, as we are a bit goofy when it comes to Christmas lights. Over the past few years, our display has evolved to the point that we feel that it should be shared with everyone, and used to inspire and inform others about the Joy of Giving.

Christmas is a time to get together with family and friends and look back on the past year. A time to think of how blessed each one of us are. Most importantly, it is a time to remember the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Have you ever wondered what Christmas would be like if you had to worry what to feed your family, wondering if that last five dollars should buy your child a present or if you should put it towards your past due utility bills? Friends, there are hard working families in our community that face that very situation on a daily basis, and they need our help. The Willmar Salvation Army helps these families get back on their feet so that they can become independent again.

Thank You!

WOW! The 2014 light display was incredible. We would like to thank all of our family, friends, neighbors, supporters and sponsors for last year’s great success. With everyone’s help, we were able to raise over $135,000 for our local Willmar Salvation Army. Over the past 7 years, we have raised over $385,000.

We would especially like to thank the following business for their matching kettle contribution last year. CHS INC matched $10,000, Lakeland Broadcasting matched $5000, Marcus Construction matched $10,000 and West Central Sanitation matched $5000. A special thank you to CaseIH for sponsoring the drive in movie nights and fireworks!
Because of your generous donations we are able to impact our local community!

If you or your organization is interested in donating their time putting up lights, ringing the bell or becoming a sponsor, please contact Chad.
