N-Tour-of-lights-Patin-webWould you like to see some great lights and help a good cause at the same time? Then head over to the Patin house at 2207 15 Mile Road, in Sparta Township. Nolan Patin, 12, set up his own Christmas display—with music! And not only did he teach himself how to set it up, he paid for it, too—with his own money. According to Nolan’s mom, Cindy Patin, while most kids his age would be playing video games, Nolan spent his time researching how to set up the light show with music. And he spent several hundred dollars of his fair money to purchase and learn the computer software. “He’s really worked hard at it,” she explained.

Nolan, a sixth-grader at Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in Belmont, also has a heart for the Cedar Springs Historical Museum, and is setting up a donation box outside the exhibit for onlookers to donate to his favorite charity.

So take a drive over to the Patin place, set your radio dial to 95.1, and enjoy a great show. And don’t forget to donate! For more Tour of Lights, click here.
