Gadsby residents light up the night and help the local food bank.

Kerri Pothier and her husband have already seen quite a few visitors in Gadsby to view their lights and have made five drop-offs of food and toy donations to a local store this season.

Potheir said they like serving their community by bringing lights to Gadsby and area.

“We are so thankful for all the smiles it brings, especially to the faces of the young ones and we are especially grateful to be able to bring so many donations back into the food bank.”

Pothier said the lights will be on from dusk until dawn until Jan. 1 at 206 – 4 St. in Gadsby. Not shown is a 22-piece Rudolph reindeer where all of the misfit toys and main characters light up.

“We just ask that visitors check in before walking through. As always, food bank donations are absolutely welcome here.”

Last year more than 900 vehicles viewed the light display.
