We were finally able to drop off all of your donations to The Wilton Food Pantry last week. The total amount (after some small paypal processing fees for the online contributions) came to $937.68. Thank you to everyone who donated, and of course to the folks at the Wilton Food Pantry who work hard every week volunteering to make sure famlies in 4 different towns have enough to eat! God Bless You All!
We just wanted to say thank you to everyone for a great season, wish you all a Merry Christmas one last time for the year, and a Happy New Year as well! The final amount collected for the Wilton Food Pantry was $950.25, which works out to about 5939 lbs of food! Way To Go!
As mentioned previously, we are taking at least a year off as we are expecting a new baby (which we recently learned is probably a girl). You can read all about that if you missed it (and here in the Sun Journal as well). We’re excited about our new life changes, but we will miss working on the display. We will post here and on facebook when we are ready to start doing it again.
Thanks to all for your support!
Here is rather lengthy post regarding our plans (or lack there of) for next year, and an update on what’s been collected for the Wilton Food Pantry.
Once again we are accepting donations for the Wilton Food Pantry. We have collected $258.75 so far this season (as of Dec 22nd). That’s enough for them to purchase 1617 lbs of food. Keep up the good work! If we collect $1000 by January 6th then we will run the lights for an extra night! You can donate via the secure lock box on the back of our sign at the display or right here online! Thanks for all of your support and Merry Christmas!
The lights are on starting tonight from 5:00 to 9:30 PM through January 6th. It’s our first night of the season so expect some glitches. No new songs yet, but we expect to add at least 1 more before Christmas.
Howdy Folks! Just a quick update to let you know that we are indeed working to get the display up for this Christmas. We do not have a date. It will be done when it’s done and that will depend on weather and when we find time to do it. Thanks for your patience!
The display for Halloween 2011 is up and running. The fog machine will only be running on some nights (depending on wheather and how ambitious we feel that night). Everything else will be on from 6:30-9:30 PM every night through trick or treat night.
We just wanted to let folks know (since we’ve gotten quite a few questions about it) that we are indeed doing a Halloween display this year. We’ve been working on it this past week and hope to have it up and running in the next few days. We’ll post again here and on facebook when we know which days and hours it will be running.
Well it took us long enough, but we’ve finally gotten the video of this past season’s Christmas display up for all to see. We used a different camera this year and not everything fit in a single view, so we used two angles and combined them in to a one video. We also opted to provide a single video of the entire display rather than individual videos of each song. This should provide a more immersive experience. Lastly, we increased the video quality. Most broadband users will be able to play it right away, but some may need to let it load first for uninterrupted playback. If you have a 1.5Mbit connection or better then you should be all set. Happy-belated Holidays! Merry Christmas in July! …And get ready for Halloween!
Feel free to discuss this on Facebook!
UPDATE: We’ve found the lights we need. Thanks to all who went looking. We’ll have some new additions for 2011!
This is the time of year when all the Christmas lights go on sale and we stock up for next year. Unfortunately, no one seems to have any lights left over to mark down this season. So we’re looking for a little help. Read on for details.. Continue reading A Little Help… Please?
