Thank You!

We would like to thank all of our family, friends, neighbors, supporters and sponsors for last year’s great success.  With everyone’s help, we were able to raise over $75,000 for our local Willmar Salvation Army.  Over the past 5 years, we have raised over $250,000.

We would especially like to thank the following business for their matching kettle contribution last year.  CHS INC matched $7,000, Lakeland Broadcasting matched $5000, and West Central Sanitation matched $5000.

New for the 2014-15 Season

This past year has been very eventful for us as we welcomed our daughter into this world in April.  With a new addition to the family comes a new 40-foot tall tree to the Christmas Lights!!!  (An apology to our wonderful neighbors for all the telephone poles in our yard)

Sophia’s tree will be an all pink tree on the outside with a 20- foot tall blue tree in the middle along with dancing hoops on the top!!  Daddy has spent a lot of time designing a special tree for his little one.

We are will also be adding a shooting star that will fly from the top of the 40 foot tall dancing tree to the nativity and maybe a new song.

Last year we were blessed to have another engagement out at the lights and as always, want to help make your night special.  If you have any requests or would like to donate your time, please let us know and we will do whatever we can to accommodate.

Thank you again for making this fundraiser for the Salvation Army successful and helping us celebrate the birth of our Savior.

May God Bless You,

Chad, Angela & Sophia Koosman

How Your Support Helps

We enjoy sharing our love for the holiday season with our friends, neighbors and others through the magic of holiday lights.

For the last 6 years, I have been doing a Christmas light display at my house. It started out as something that I really enjoyed doing, as I am a bit goofy when it comes to Christmas lights. Over the past few years, my display has evolved to the point that I feel that it should be shared with everyone, and used to inspire and inform others about the Joy of Giving.

Christmas is a time to get together with family and friends and look back on the past year. A time to think of how blessed each one of us are. Most importantly, it is a time to remember the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Have you ever wondered what Christmas would be like if you had to worry what to feed your family, wondering if that last five dollars should buy your child a present or if you should put it towards your past due utility bills? Friends, there are hard working families in our community that face that very situation on a daily basis, and they need our help. The Willmar Salvation Army helps these families get back on their feet so that they can become independent again.
