We've Gone Green!
As Christmas approaches, most eyes in the area turn to
the Lion's lighted star overlooking Holmen. This year, however, they'll be
seeing green when they look up. Green as in energy efficient LED bulbs.
Each of the 108 incandescent bulbs which were 25 watts have been replaced
by LED bulbs which consume a mere 2 watts each! Of course, not only are we
saving money in the energy usage, but the lifespan of a single LED is a
25,000 hours, or a little over 2 years! That means fewer man-hours spent
replacing bulbs. In the picture above, Holmen Lions President Dave Bentzen
