Over the past decade, Lights on the River has not only helped hundreds of families, but it has also become a holiday tradition that lives in the hearts of thousands throughout the North Country. Our Board of Directors would like to thank everyone that has donated, put in a display, been involved in setup and/or visited us during one of our events. Without the community, we would not be able to make this possible.
We are in the planning process for our 10 year anniversary and we would like to add a few additions to our event this year. We are in search of new Members who would like to help us with the 10th anniversary and help us take this tradition of holiday fun into the next decade. Please contact Jon at 315-244-2019 if you are interested!
