RHINELANDER - Downtown Rhinelander will be a little brighter this holiday season.

The Rhinelander Community Foundation bestowed a $13,000 grant to make it happen.

The grant will be used for new downtown streetlights. Downtown lighting is an ongoing project for Downtown Rhinelander Inc.

Pat LaPorte of the design committee says they are hoping to add more than just lights. 

"It's expensive and it's a community thing," said LaPorte. "We are certainty grateful for the people that have contributed. We still have a ways to go, but it's getting there."
The lights should be up sometime next week. LaPorte is hoping more funds come in for a downtown centerpiece.
