JVS Masonry Trades students “Holiday Lights” display

Masonry Trades students stand by their “Holiday Lights” display at the Carlisle Visitor Center.
For the tenth consecutive year, the Lorain County JVS junior Masonry Trades class is taking part in the “Holiday Lights” event at the Lorain County Metro Parks Carlisle Visitor
Center. For the past few years, the students have created and painted iconic characters from the classic holiday movie, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” and with the release of
“The Grinch” in movie theatres now, the students were excited to bring new life to a favorite holiday character.
Emily Penner, Masonry Trades junior from North Ridgeville, worked on the display last year when she was shadowing the masonry program as a sophomore, and she was
excited to take the lead on the project this year.
David Rudisill, Masonry Trades Instructor, enjoys having this be a tradition for his program and looks forward to it each year. “The fun thing for me about this project is that
the students don’t actually think they are learning, but this is exactly what we are doing out in the field, we are just making it out of holiday items.”
The theme for the “Holiday Lights” event is classic holiday movies. This year, the students created and painted the Grinch, the moose, a Christmas tree, new presents and gave
the sleigh a fresh coat of paint. Cindy Lou Who, Max, the reindeer-dog, and the chimney are a part of the display as well, but these items were created from past classes and are
being used again this year.
Visitors can vote on their favorite display; the masonry students hope you vote for number 23, “The Grinch.” Votes are taken inside the Carlisle Visitor Center, where refresh-
ments are also offered for a small fee, courtesy of the Friends of Metro Parks.
You won’t want to miss these spectacular pieces designed, built and painted by JVS students! The ‘Holiday Lights’ at the Carlisle Visitor Center takes place now through De-
cember 30.
