Two Time Winners of Town's Christmas Lights Display Are Fined by HOA

WELLINGTON, COLORADO — Davin Armstrong is facing his own version of the Grinch this year: a homeowners association that wants to snuff out his Christmas decorations.

Armstrong, 35, and his wife, Amber Hersh, 34, have won the town of Wellington’s Christmas lights display two years in a row, but in June, his Buffalo Creek subdivision HOA passed a rule limiting the amount of permissible lawn ornaments to three, he said.

The HOA is now threatening to fine the family $25 every two weeks until they take the lights down, he said. His display, which has become a neighborhood favorite, exceeds the rule by more than 20.

Note the civic-minded nature of the Armstrong's display -- their home is a drop-off site for the Big Country 97.9 Quarter Million Can Crusade and Lights for Life, an initiative that recycles old and broken holiday string lights to benefit children with cancer.
