COPPERAS COVE, TX — For over 30 years, the Scribner's house in Copperas Cove has been a favorite for it's Christmas light display. But after a recent stroke, Ted Scribner wasn't able to get out his plywood cutouts and colorful lights.

Dale Hull grew up in Copperas Cove and has seen the Scribner's display for as long as he can remember. He noticed the lights were not put out and wanted to do something about it.

"I just said hey, let’s get some crews of people over here and get some lights up for these people. I just thought it would be something better for the community,” Hull said.

About a dozen showed up to help so all of the community can see the lights.

Ted Scribner is very thankful for all of the help.

“It’s just very humbling to be covered like that and I didn’t have to do anything,” Scribner said.

They plan to keep the Christmas lights up through the end of January, when Hull will come back to put them away. And if the Scribners need help again next year, Hull says he is willing to put them out again.
