Legacy Co-op Brings Holiday Cheer with $150,000 Sponsorship for Christmas Light Project

As the holiday season approaches, the community of Yorkton, Saskatchewan, has something extraordinary to look forward to, thanks to a generous $150,000 sponsorship from Legacy Co-op. In partnership with the Yorkton Lions Club, this exciting initiative aims to create an enchanting Christmas Light project that promises to become a cherished annual tradition.

Lighting Up Yorkton: A Community Celebration

The Christmas Light project is a brilliant new venture inspired by the spirit of community and celebration. Set to transform the City of Yorkton Campground into a glittering winter wonderland, this drive-thru holiday light event will feature 20 spectacular light displays and 30 dazzling lighted trees in the first year and adding displays every year there after. Scheduled to kick off in December 2024, the event aligns perfectly with Legacy Co-op’s vision of “Providing Value to our Communities” and complements their annual Season of Giving.

A Vision of Joy and Unity

Legacy Co-op General Manager, Harley McClughan, shared his enthusiasm about the sponsorship, stating, “We are proud to support this endeavour that brings the community together and attracts people to visit Yorkton. We look forward to seeing everyone there, making lifelong memories.” This initiative not only aims to spread joy and wonder but also supports local businesses and boosts tourism during the often quieter winter months.

Yorkton Lions Club: A Tradition of Service

The Yorkton Lions Club, renowned for its significant contributions to community service and development, is equally excited about the collaboration. Denny Vachon, President of the Yorkton Lions, expressed, “This generous contribution from Legacy Co-op allows us to offer something truly special to the people of Yorkton and surrounding areas. It’s more than just a light show; it’s an experience we know families will make a tradition for years to come.”

Community Involvement and Future Plans

As anticipation builds for the event, the community is invited to participate in a naming contest for the Christmas Light project, adding a personal touch to this festive celebration. Details of this contest and other exciting aspects of the project will be announced as the event date approaches.
