Ross DeCaigny, his wife, Shelly, and other family members have spent countless hours over the past two years putting together a Christmas lighting display to be admired by many this holiday. The display features over 80,000 lights, 50 strobe lights, 160 lighting channels, and around 200 extension cords, and is run from a computer in their home with equipment purchased from a company called Light-O-Rama. The family has made a temporary parking lot out of their front yard for spectators to take it all in. On the way out is a donation box for those who wish to make a contribution to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. “We chose the Make-a-Wish Foundation because we wanted to help make the season a little brighter for a child with a life threatening medical condition,” said DeCaigny. “These children are dealing with a lot of physical and emotional stress. We hope the wish sponsored through the donations collected from the light show will bring a child happiness this holiday season.”
Sawyer Lights can be seen at the home of Ross and Shelly DeCaigny at 3569 Highway 210 in Sawyer, and corresponding music can be heard over a low power FM transmitter channel 93.5 built by Ross from a hobby kit. The show runs now through Jan. 2 with times from 5-9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 5-10:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
