It's with extreme sadness that I must cancel the Carrollight's Christmas Display effective this Christmas 2018.
The wife and I discussed this and we both agreed on the same things
We do this for the concerned safety of the families that have made this display part of their Christmas tradition. I have thought this over for many years since Michael passed away.
I have talked to many people saying they don't feel comfortable sitting outside the house that's why many have stopped attending.
The Wheeling Police Department offered more drive by's when the light display is on but I do not want more work for the men and women of the Police department, they are busy enough as it is.
Also, the display gets vandalized more and more which I have never brought to any ones attention, and last year after taking down the lights and testing them before storing them for the next year half of the light strands were cut and bulb sockets were ripped from the cord.... that's when I said....Done!
I want to personally thank everybody who supported our Light Display by spending some of their Christmas Holiday with us since 2007,
It's sad that the only reason I must stop this is because of selected people who live in our neighborhood who cannot respect other people and there properties and the ever growing concern for the safety of the families that visit the Light Display.
I considered moving the display to a new location but
I'm not really wanting to do that, If what we did was easy, everybody would do it and the time involved just to configure the new network would take me a month alone. and I been at this since 2007 so I can say I'm an expert at this
"If" I do move the display I will let you know
Please Click the banner below to be taken to Michael's Project, His dream is for every child diagnosed with cancer get a stress toy that Michael created to help them cope with their sickness, It has turned into quite an amazing project, Christmas is the time for giving and giving a "Meanie" to a child that helps them understand why they are sick, what better gift is that, (besides total and complete remission)
I get people wanting to make a donation to the Light Display so every
penny donated here or in person will go to Michael's Meanies which goes to providing Children and their
Hospitals with Meanies, To a child with cancer a Meanie is always free,
