During December, the committee compiled a city-wide tour map of homes whose owners submitted their addresses for holiday light viewing. In its first year, the event drew 127 residential entries and one business entry, with $1 and $5, respectively, contributed for each.

The Farmington Area Goodfellows holds a holiday drive each year, funded with community donations, to ensure that no child or senior goes without a Christmas.
