A Carousel for Missoula is Raising Money to Replace Light Bulbs

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

A Carousel for Missoula is planning to replace almost one-thousand light bulbs adorning the carousel this September.

Carousel directors said they are trading the original light bulbs in for LED bulbs, which are said to be longer lasting and more energy efficient.

The challenge? Finding a LED light that maintained the old-fashion look of the carousel and keeps the correct lighting on the horses.

After a grant from NorthWestern Energy and community donations covered two-thirds of the cost, the carousel is in its final leg of fundraising to replace the 966-hundred bulbs.

"We recently had an energy consultant come and look at the difference between the light bulbs we currently have and the ones we have chosen to replace them with, and we can save about over two-thousand dollars a year in electric by using the new light bulb," Executive Director of the Carousel, Theresa Cox said.

To help raise the rest of the money, A Carousel for Missoula is putting on the 'Buy A Bulb' fundraiser. Any person to donate will be put into a drawing to win a free private party at the carousel.
