Construction will not disrupt annual lights display

Despite the initial hiccup that possible road construction would jeopardize it, Reynolds Farm Equipment, Inc. is happy to announce that it will host its 20th annual free Christmas lights display this holiday season.

“We had some better clarification from the Indiana Department of Transportation, who assured us that the road to the lights display will remain opened,” said Michael Lawson.

The family-owned business is hoping that the generous public will shine even brighter than its annual Christmas lights display. Fishers Come-To-Me Food Pantry and Interfaith Hospitality Network of Indianapolis will have volunteers on-site for several nights to collect any free-will monetary and non-perishable goods donations.

“We worked with the volunteers of IHN several years ago by allowing their staff to collect free-will donations,” says Lawson, “and we’re glad to have them back this year on a couple of select dates. The other select dates will be staffed by volunteers from the local food pantry.”

Visiting motorists will have the opportunity to receive donor information when they drive thru the lights display as well as make any free-will donations. Those authorized volunteers will be clearly recognized and visible during their drive thru the Christmas lights. Reynolds Farm Equipment’s Free Christmas Lights Display can be seen dusk to dawn beginning Nov. 20 through Jan. 1, 2013. The display is located at 12501 Reynolds Drive in Fishers, near the southeast corner of Ind. 37 and 126th Street.

For a safer driving environment, Reynolds has taken precautions with hired services from within the Fishers Police Department, who will be on-hand for most weekend evenings to help direct the traffic both coming in and out of the display.
