Thank you!

Yes, I’m aware that this post is now almost four months overdue. But hey, better late than never. The light show this year was spectacular, and I had a great time working on it. I know everything got a little hairy towards the end of the season, but things don’t always go 100% as you plan them.

First of all, I’d like to thank my roommates, Derek Gerdeman and Byran Hoersten. I simply could not have pulled this off without them. Derek and Bryan helped immensely with everything from the mini-trees, to wrapping the arches, and hanging lights and pulling cords. Thank you so much!

Thanks to the girls next door, we were able to greatly expand this year’s show, and everything turned out great. We appreciate them letting us climb around on their house attaching lights to everything!

I’d like to thank Emily Cooper and Mike Kurtz from the UD Media Production Group for putting together the awesome “Behind the Scenes” video featured on the University of Dayton’s homepage.

Definitely need to thank all of our neighbors (except one) who not only put up with the same Christmas music playing every night, but also coming out to watch the lights with us night after night in the blistering cold. Appreciate all your support!

Should also thank my Dad for letting me borrow some extension cords and other miscellaneous things, along with Derek’s dad Jim, for allowing us to use his ladder, and some some other tools. (And perhaps teaching us the meaning of hard work? lol)

Thank YOU everyone, for watching the videos, leaving comments and stopping by to enjoy the show! After all, its you that we do this for.

And this wouldn’t be a true Jonathon thank-you note without thanking UD Residential Properties for being a thorn in my side the whole time, and ultimately ruining the whole thing.

Thanks! Hope to see you next year!
