This year has been different, that’s an understatement.

Now is a great time for us to work together to lift up our family, friends, and neighbors as we head into the holiday season.  We can lift each other up through random acts of kindness spread across the Willmar lakes area.

  • From a simple smile and hello to shoveling your neighbor's sidewalk, we can help Light Up the Willmar Lakes Area.
  • By supporting local businesses, restaurants and coffee shops, we can help Light Up the Willmar Lakes Area.
  • From a single light left on through the night to a light show that rivals Christmas Vacation, we can help Light Up the Willmar Lakes Area.

The Willmar Lakes Area Community Leadership Team is working hard to support the community throughout the pandemic.

Their Social Connectedness Task Team's goal is to develop a countywide strategy to promote positive social engagement in a pandemic safe manner to boost mental health and a sense of community well-being. "Light Up the Willmar Lakes Area" will use the universally positive element of light to anchor this effort.  This initiative allows individuals, neighborhoods, organizations, agencies, businesses and cities/county officials to engage, promote, and lift up the region in a way that is intercultural, intergenerational and inclusive.
