Bulb fund-raiser helping city pay for new Christmas wreath for park

The Wreath Re-creation Committee is a local group working to produce a new version of the Wolf & Dessauer Merry Christmas wreath that illuminated Huntington’s Sunken Gardens during the holidays from 1998 to 2017. Members of the committee hold light bulbs from the original wreath, which is no longer useable, that have been converted into keepsakes and are being sold to fund the construction of the new wreath. Pictured are (from left) committee members Mike Keplinger, Sherry Keplinger, Barb Drummond, Dan Drummond, Terry Sappington, Seth Kimmel and Steve Yoder.

The Merry Christmas wreath that illuminated Sunken Gardens for 20 years has gone permanently dark.

But anyone who appreciated the light it cast each holiday season will now be able to own a piece of it.

And by purchasing one of those pieces, the construction of a new Merry Christmas wreath gets closer to being paid for.
