A Personal Message from Keith

We have been interviewed a lot lately, the common question is why do we spend so much time to put up such a large Christmas Display.  There are several reasons.  As a hard working middle class family (Keith is in the Wine business and Marina is a High School Teacher) we believe it is so important to give back to our community.  As much of a struggle it is for us we know there are so many people who are so much worse off.  We also feel it is very important to instill in our two boys (10 and 8) the values of helping others who may need it. 

Another reason. We LOVE to see the joy this display brings to all who come.  When you see the kids dancing around, looking with amazement, wanting to ask so many questions not to mention the adults wondering can I do this!!

The donation aspect of the display  we ALWAYS say this FOR THOSE WHO ARE ABLE we know everyone who comes here is not financially able to give AND THAT IS OK!  We just want EVERYONE to walk away with joy in their hearts, a moment in the holiday season that your heart was brightened up! 

FOR THOSE WHO ARE ABLE, PLEASE . think about this display as a night out to a Broadway show or a movie.  What goes into making this display possible you just cannot imagine.  PLEASE help us to help others, PLEASE consider a donation of $20.00 or more.  When I tell you the countless hours my family puts into this display and when we pull the $20, $50 and yes even $100’s it makes up so happy to know that so many people will have food on another day that they normally wouldn’t.  Remember 100% of all the donations go directly to the food bank and 100% of that donation goes out to people who need it.  The food bank is 100% volunteers with no overhead!! 

 That takes me back to the movie aspect of it, what would you spend on a night to see a Hollywood Film?  This may not be Holleywood but we think it is pretty close!!!!

Newest Addition

FOR VIP parking see VIP section above. 

IF COMING from the North of our House.  WE HIGHLY recommend you park BEFORE you get to our house.  There is a lot of parking on the RIGHT side of MAIN street JUST BEFORE YOU START down the Hill to our House.  You will see a 25 Mile Sign, you can park prior to that sign. ON THE RIGHT  ALSO in that same location there is a road Goodwin Road.  Make a LEFT onto this road there is PLENTY of parking there and it is only a two minute walk to our house.  If you miss these you can try to get parking just south of our house on MAIN street (look for the 25 mile an hour sign just below our house) BUT IT IS VERY LIMITED and if there are not spots there you have to go around several blocks to get back to the NORTH side of our house.  AGAIN I RECOMMEND you park BEFORE our house!!!!!  DO NOT TRY TO PARK On the dead end street across from our house it is VERY LIMITED and VERY HARD to turn around on. 
IF COMING from the South of our House.  Parking will be allowed starting 4 houses south of our house ON MAIN STREET.  If there are no spots here continue PAST our house to the FIRST Street to make a RIGHT onto, this is Goodwin Road (a two minute walk to our house).  
We recommend carpooling with your friends and make it a fun night out!  Be sure to visit the many great restaurants in our town!  
Important information
Dress WARM ALL nights when the lights are dancing with the music you will need to stand on our lawn. 
Let this Christmas Display bring Joy to you and help so many who are in need.
