Donations up at Irvine Park Christmas Village

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Chippewa Falls (WQOW)- The twinkling lights at Irvine Park's Christmas Village are just about all down, but donations this year were up.

Tuesday, inmates from the Chippewa County Correctional Facility spent the morning taking down the rest of the lights and wrapping them up for next year.

Dick Hebert, the Chippewa Falls parks, recreation, and forestry director, said they lost six days because Thanksgiving was later in the month last year, but it didn't affect donations.

Hebert said they received nearly $800 more in donations than last year.

"The weather was really good," Hebert said. "We also had the Girl Scout display so it was a very successful year and we're looking forward to year 33."

Hebert said they're still looking for volunteers to help with repairs and replacing cords for lights.

If you're interested in helping, you should call parks and recreation at  (715) 723-0051.
