What a fun time we had with the first annual Light Up Grand Junction contest sponsored by MOR Storage Sales. And a huge thank you to all of the people around Western Colorado who spend the time to put up lights to make the season brighter for everyone.

If you're looking for the best Christmas Light map around we have you covered.

With over 60 entries in total is was not an easy decision for the selection team but we have a winner... Congrats to my new friends Jerry and Cookie Wilds who live at 550 Poplar Street in Fruita!

It was a pleasure chatting with Jerry and Cookie as they received the $500 check to which Jerry replied that it would help pay the electric bill.

While chatting with the fun couple they brought up the fact that they do it to make others happy. And told me about one time a car slowed down and a young boy said thank you for putting up the lights and decorations.

Another time someone put an anonymous card saying thank you for putting up the lights. Those memories meant a lot. So, if you see them or anyone putting up lights make sure to wave, smile, or roll down the window and say thank you. Wishing you and your family the best this holiday season.
