Annual Caroling Events

LIH clients will once again be sharing various “Sounds of the Seasons” throughout the community.  This year we will be offering TWO different events to attend.

  • Rotary Lights
    Performing in the Heated Tent
    Wednesday, December 4, 2019
    6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
    Featuring 10 – 13 small group performances
    Performers please sign up by Nov 13

    INFO FOR PERFORMERS:  Please arrive in the tent by 5:55 PM and check in with Susannah from the LIH team – She will be wearing a red Santa hat.  We will begin promptly at 6:00 PM.  Please plan to stay for the whole performance (6:00 PM – 7:00 PM).  A set list will be provided when you arrive which will help you know when to perform.  When it is your turn to perform we will have you make your way to the front of the stage (or on the stage) depending on the group performing.  We have requested that the heated tend be more accessible by placing additional mats or wood planks over the wood chip floor to assist those with walkers or wheelchairs; however, we are uncertain if they were able to make any accommodations.  We look forward to having you join us!  Parking is available on side streets near the park entrance OR you can also park in the Riverside Park loop if you require close parking proximity to the tent.

  • Red Kettle at the Valley View Mall
    Performing at Center Court (by Santa)
    Saturday, December 21, 2019
    10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

EVENT #1: December 4, 2019

Rotary Lights 2019Gather at the Rotary Lights in La Crosse at Riverside Park to share a little holiday harmony with those gathered in the heated tent as well as those all over the park; performances in the heated tent are amplified throughout Riverside Park!  NEW in 2019: This event will be made up of small groups due to the event being 60 minutes in duration (instead of 2 hours in the past).  We are creatively working to prepare with clients in an individual setting and we look forward to working collaboratively in small groups on the night of the event.  Due to preparation needed, this performance opportunity will be limited to individuals receiving ongoing weekly or e/o week sessions – all are welcome to attend in the audience!  Participants should plan to stay for the full duration as specific group performance times will not be assigned.  We will begin promptly at 6:00 PM and another performance group begins at 7:00 PM. Please bring a non-perishable food item(s) to donate as you exit the park.  This is a small way to give back to the community for this opportunity for our clients to shine as bright as the lights!

EVENT #2: December 21, 2019

Red Kettle 2019

Not only will shoppers hear your voice, but Santa will, too!  Come share your sounds of the season and help the Red Kettle jingle as we sing at the Valley View Mall on one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year!  Stop by between 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM if you would like to sing so we can work you in before our time is up.  This event is open to all clients receiving services or those who are receiving infrequent sessions in November/December due to recent staff changes.
