Vonda McConnell, Office Manager for the Greater Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce was a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville studios on Friday. Host Jim Finks asked McConnell about the Festival of Lights program in Shelbyville, and how it might potentially end. McConnell said how it’s unfortunate how it’s essentially a year round job to maintain the display, done by two people. McConnell also stated that she feels that the people who have been maintaining the display so far have done a great job.
McConnell did say that although there have been many ideas to help save the Festival, the Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce does not handle the festival directly.
