Christmas is fast approaching…just 9 days away!!! The lights will be up and running every night until Christmas night.  We hope you all get the chance to stop by to enjoy the show!!!

As you may know, we collect voluntary donations for the Make A Wish Foundation of Maine.  The average cost of a child’s wish is $6000, which gives the family and child a small break from their struggles and makes wonderful, cherished memories for wish children and their families.  No donation is too big or too small.  Due to the short Christmas season, we are only about a third of the way to granting a child’s wish this year.  Please help us spread the word and Christmas cheer to make a very special child’s wish come true.
Merry Christmas from the Norton Family!

Merry Christmas everyone!

We at Norton Lights have been very busy to try and get the show ready for all our wonderful patrons. 

ü  Yard set up

o   One mega tree

o   Ribbon candy Christmas tree on house

o   Star and tail on house

o   Star wands

o   Tree trunks

ü  Lights tested (have to fix a couple things in the yard thanks to mother nature)

ü  Programming (98% done, we still need to test and tweak to make it perfect)

ü  Candy canes (over 5000 ready to go)

ü  Signs ready to go up

We have been non-stop since Halloween to try and get everything going.  I even had to take a week off from work to program the show.  We still have a little work to do and with our schedule, we will need the rest of the week to finish it up. 

Norton Lights will start on Friday the 6th this year.  We know it’s a short season this year, we tried to start a little early, but our schedules make that difficult.  So the lights will run from 5:00 to 9:00 Sunday to Thursday, and 5:00 to 10:00 on Friday and Saturday nights until Christmas. 

We are excited to be teaming up with Make a Wish of Maine again this season to try and raise enough money to grant the wish for a child with a life threatening illness in the state of Maine.  With your help, we hope to meet that goal.

As always, we ask that everyone who comes to visit please be considerate of our neighbors and please do not block their driveways.

Merry Christmas!
The Norton Family

It was a pretty incredible night, despite the rain! Thank you to everyone who helped make this year's OPERATION: Scare 'N Share a success! You donated 698 pounds of food and $442.60! We can't wait to deliver your donations to the food pantry!
We had a very exciting moment last night, when an Airman, who recently returned from a 6 month deployment proposed to his devoted girlfriend in front of the house. We had been planning for a week to pull off this special surprise and programmed the song "Marry Me" for the two of them. Thank you for including us in this special moment and a HUGE thank you to our dear friends who captured the moment for them by taking pictures! Here's the happy couple!

Just a few more nights....

We will be running the show nightly through Halloween night, 5:30 to 9 p.m.  We have received a lot of donations for the food pantry so far, but would LOVE to fill those shelves!!!! We will accept any and all non-perishable food items.  This time of year, it gets a lot harder for some families to get the food they need, while preparing for winter, heating costs, and the holidays just around the corner. 

Thank you again! We are having a lot of fun with the show this year, as always! If you come see the show on Halloween night, please drive very slowly and watch out for the little ghosts and goblins :)

Thank you, drive safely, and have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

OPERATION: Scare 'N Share

It's that time again! 

Columbus weekend is always a crazy weekend for us at Nortonlights! We will be hard at work testing lights, working on programming and setting up for Halloween (with a little bit of Christmas too).  We are hoping to kick off the show on Saturday October 19th and run nightly through Halloween. 

As with every Halloween, we are hoping to fill up our local food pantry!  When you come by to see the show, please bring a canned good to share.  This time of year is especially hard for some families, so let's do our best to help out. 

We will be posting updates soon with our progress and schedule.  Thank you have have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!
