It was just yesterday where we flipped the switch on with anticipation of a great year.




We started hauling our decorations and props to the fire station on September 29. It's hard to believe we start so early. Our poles for trees of lights were the first thing to go up. Then, it was onto other props before actual lights were seen.



Halloween arrives and it's time for some trick-n-treating. While the little ghosts and goblins were getting geared up for some candy, we finally reached the half-way point to finishing the show.



November come marching in leaving 22 days until Thanksgiving. Our work continued non-stop on the weekends trying to complete this mission. When the weekend of the 18th arrived, we reach a milestone of having the display completed so early. After a few test runs that revealed communications problems with the control devices, it was finally resolved on Thanksgiving.



The moment of truth comes. As the clock ticks closer to six o'clock, lot's of guests lined the parking area with great anticipation. We on the other hand was nervous as politician on election day. Click and the show's on. Lot's of joy and excitement and things went off without a hitch.



December 15th creeps upon us with one huge event. Judy Pancoast made another visit for the third straight year along with Cameron Kent from WXII12 News, the Chick-Fil-A cow, and Classic Country 98.1 broadcasting live. Did we mention the excellent food that was served? Danny, Shirley, Terry Newel and Barefoot Rick made sure our hunger problems were taken care of.




Now, Christmas is here. Only seven days remain for the 2012 season. Where did time go? Were so excited that many folks from all over the region came and made our light show a part of their Christmas. We couldn't thank you enough for that - especially the donations for the fire station.



I'll leave you with one last thing, if you thought the light show was excellent this year, wait until you see what's on the horizon for 2013. This will literally blow your socks off.
