The four Sheboygan County Rotary clubs came together for the Second Annual Making Spirits Bright light show at Evergreen Park from November 29th to December 28th. Each year, volunteers from the four Sheboygan County Rotary Clubs are called upon to staff the event, with tasks ranging from food collection to greeting guests. This year three Van Horn Employees participated in the Making Spirits bright event. “They had us set up all over the park doing different things,” said Kellyn Schneider, Special Finance Advisor at Joe Van Horn Chevrolet. “My assignment was at the front gate greeting visitors. It was cold, but a lot of fun.” The rotary does not charge for the event, but does ask that anyone who is able, donate non-perishable food items. All donations benefit the Sheboygan County Food Bank.
