St. Patrick's Day

Yes, 'tis mid March when we all could use a wee bit of luck 'o the Irish, especially this year! Thanks to Leo Wieser and Lori Stuart for being the troopers they are setting these up, the board members who have been scheduling their days around turning the lights on and off, and to Geoff Murray/Brisket Case, Gary Stuart, Because I Said So, MTM Equipment, Bleeding Art Industries, and Power Productions for their support in time, money and materials to help make this happen.

Valentines Day Feb 2021

Valentine's Lighting

We showed our love for Nanton by using the orange elevatora as our canvas, lighting it with multiple little hearts for Valentine's Day. Thanks to Lori Stuart, Leo Wieser, MTM Equipment, Power Productions, and Bleeding Art Industries for their support of the Valentine's Day lighting. We hope it cheered up travelers coming through and Nantonites who had a chance to go see them. If they warmed your heart, please consider donating. Even a small amount helps go towards the cost of putting on these lighting displays for the community.
