Rotary Lights clean up underway in La Crosse

A La Crosse tradition has ended and now the clean up begins for Rotary Lights.

Starting Tuesday morning volunteers were in La Crosse’s Riverside Park to remove the more than 3 million lights that were on display.

Rotary Lights president Pat Stephens says the more than 100 volunteers make the day run smoothly.

“We’ll get a lot accomplished and a lot of stuff moved and stuff and these are all Wisconsinites, they’re used to the Wisconsin weather, it is what it is,” said Pat Stephens, president of Rotary Lights.

While final totals aren’t in from the food collection drive at Rotary Lights, Stephens says they had a very good year.
