How to Bounce Back From the Holiday Debt Hangover - Yahoo Finance

Social News The Sportsmens Park light show in Sleepy Eye has been put away until next holiday season. Several volunteers gathered Thursday to tear down the Holiday Lights in Motion display. The illuminated array of holiday displays ranged from the religious to the secular; a Santa scene and an elaborate Nativity panorama; even a waving snowman. Shari Hittesdorf, co-founder of the holiday spectacle, said although the display is over for the year, the work is not. We definitely accomplished what we wanted to, which was to generate interest and hopefully the support will be there in the future, Hittesdorf commented. We are already looking at next year and setting priorities and financial goals. In addition, the displays will be worked on over the summer to make sure every light is working for next season, fundraising efforts will be ramped up, some of the displays for the Dick Ginn display will be worked on and more planning for the future will take place.
