Wednesday evening found several members of the Perry Volunteer Fire Department using their 75-foot ladder truck to string lights in the trees on the Raccoon Valley Bank property at the northeast corner of Second and Warford Streets.
The fireman used five strings for the tree outside the front lobby on the west end of the lot last week, then spent parts of Tuesday and Wednesday finishing the tree east of the bank with seven additional strands. Each set of lights were 100-feet in length.
Involved in Tuesday and Wednesday’s efforts were Jason and Aimee Bane, Rodney Cromwell, Ronnie Defenbaugh, Doug Harlan, Grayson Hill, Travis Murphy and Clint Nelson.
Raccoon Valley Bank makes a donation to the Perry Firefighter’s Association in exchange for the decorating work.
The bank will host their annual invite-only VIP Christmas Party Dec. 3. The yearly event brings members of the business community and civic organizations together for food and holiday music in the bank itself, with a public customer appreciation celebration held the following day.
