Warmer weather not hurting annual Rotary Light donations

 The warmer temperatures aren’t stopping people from taking part in the season of giving.

The president of the Rotary lights at Riverside Park in La Crosse says they’re having a phenomenal year.

Traffic through the lights this past weekend, as well as the number of food donations broke records.

However,  all this rain is causing some technical difficulties behind the scenes.

“Rain and electricity don’t often mix  and when the ground is partially frozen of course it holds the moisture up on top. So right now, we’re enjoying Lake Riverside, and we’re hoping within the next few days that will all go down,” said Pat Stephens, president of the Rotary Lights.

A reminder, there is no admission fee to get into the Rotary lights, but they do ask that you bring a non-perishable food donation or make a monetary donation to help out area food pantries.
