For 21 years, Elgin Lights has brought people together to celebrate family.
For the last 15 years, it’s been in honor of an 11-year-old boy who left his family far too soon. This year, they’ll honor the same boy in a new way. This year will be the first for Christmas in July.
The whole goal? To raise money for that boy to have a camp of his own.
“What we really try to have here is families can come with their children and their grandchildren and they can reminisce over the past and the present,” said Paul Towns as he gave the grand tour of his property.
