SPLENDID WINTER WONDERLAND OPEN HOUSE: Harvest of Talents, a nonprofit organization, is sponsoring a Splendid Winter Wonderland Open House from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9 at the home of Vito and Linda Splendorio, 27930 250th St., Holcombe.
On display will be special holiday delights such as a myriad of snowmen marching up the curving staircase, more than 75 nutcrackers, an inspirational Nativity and a lighted Dickens Village.
Also for viewing are five trees each decorated according to a theme. One features kitchen items, a 9-foot-tall winter wonderland tree oversees the entryway, a flocked tree festooned with gold is in the living room, a traditional tree is topped with a 25-year-old gold bow and a frog-themed tree illustrates a secret family history.
This plus refreshments will be available for a $5 donation that will go toward helping the needy in Rusk County through Harvest of Talents, which uses local talent to help those in emergencies and support local food banks.
Signs will direct you to the home, located north of Highway M. Holiday wreaths and porch pots will be available for purchase.
