Making Spirits Bright and Rotary Clubs Offer Thanks

As another year of the annual lights display in Evergreen Park and indoor activities at nearby Jaycee Quarryveiw Center have come to a close, we wish to extend sincere appreciation to all who make this event successful. 

We express our gratitude to our loyal sponsors, many of whom have been with us for eleven years. We especially thank our $10,000 level donors, Brenda Potter, The Grover Family Foundation and Masters Gallery Foods. All sponsors are recognized at www.makingspiritsbright.com. There are many “in kind” donors as well offering services at no charge or a reduced rate.
Special thanks to our committees that work diligently all year, executing their respective tasks to ensure
the quality we strive for each year.

Making Spirits Bright could not function without hundreds of community volunteers in various capacities during our operation. Each night the park is open, Park Captains oversee volunteers from businesses, churches and organizations who work in the park at various posts to welcome visitors. Area restaurants donate food for our volunteers during set-up, while we are in operation and for our take-down process. Others pick up the food nightly to deliver to the park while still others are hosts/hostesses in our volunteer trailer, serving the food and beverages as well as baking the much -anticipated chocolate chip cookies. Thanks go out to the food bank truck drivers and their helpers. Each year entertainers offer their musical talent at the Quarryview Center and wreath designers donate their creations for our annual raffle. Santa even provides his time during this busy season.

No event is a success without the public who support it. Thanks to our visitors for their donations of pantry items for Sheboygan County Food Bank and their cash contributions which are primarily used toward the maintenance and future growth of the lights display. Over 23,000 vehicles were welcomed to the park and nearly 122,000 pounds of pantry items were collected during the 2022 event.

Additional volunteers are always welcome. For more details for becoming involved, please visit www.makingspiritsbright.com.
