Thanks to the generosity of a local family, the City of Hopkinsville’s annual Christmas lights display will be a little brighter this year.
Mayor Dan Kemp announced today that Raymond and Wanda Nelson of Hopkinsville recently made a large and valuable donation of Christmas lights and decorations to be used by the city for years to come.
For numerous years, local residents have made an annual excursion to the local couple’s residence on Lafayette Road to view their large holiday display.
Starting this year, those decorations will be added to the city’s holiday display to help spread holiday cheer throughout the area.
Mayor Kemp was quoted as saying he was grateful to the Nelsons for their gift.
