Customers who enter the lobby of Farmers Bank in Nicholasville will think that the bank has put their Christmas tree up a bit early.
Until they take a second look at the tree, that is.
Instead of Christmas ornaments, the tree is adorned with framed photographs of veterans. There are actually two trees in the lobby bearing veterans' photos.
The Veterans Christmas Tree is the brainchild of Sharon Bolin, senior vice president of operations for the bank, who previously worked for a bank in Powell County, at which a similar tree had been erected.
Anyone who wishes may hang a photo of a veteran on the tree. They do not have to a bank customer, Bolin said.
