“It’s a labor of love,” she said. “It is for us a privilege to display it. The village is on display from the private collection of Kay Brown who started it 20 years ago.
Asked how the bank came to be able to display it, White said, “Her daughter, Kristi is working here, it is her mother. There is a family connection.”
The village has so many details, moving objects, including a Santa with his sleigh and reindeers, it takes time to appreciate the view.
“You can just get lost in it,” White said. “We have an activity sheet so people can explore the Holiday Village, spend time with the display. It allows them to look into the details. Every time I walk by, I see something different.”
The public is invited to bring their children and see the display for themselves at RCFCU, 2514 N. Main St. The Holiday Village will be up until January.
