The Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center says attendance at Ritzy's Fantasy of Lights has been hit by the weather. Easter Seals says admission fees, which fund therapy for people with disabilities, are $24,000 behind last year's pace. 

Across town, the Salvation Army says its seen a slight decrease in donations this year because of Old Man Winter.
 
"I know this community," said Sandy Appler of the Salvation Army. "It's a wonderful community that is always giving, and they always bless us. So, I think we will see in the next couple of three days an outpouring from the community like we've never seen."

The Salvation Army says bell ringing time was cut shorter this year because of a late Thanksgiving.
