For years, the Hathaway family has put on a local light show, collecting donations for the Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

It started at their home in Bangor, but as it expanded, and the display became a popular destination for folks looking for holiday lights to admire, they moved the operation to the front lawn of the Veazie Community School.
