PATTON — “My mom had a lighted church given to her by her mother-in-law (my grandmother) under our Christmas tree every year when I was a kid,” wrote Barbara Barnosky of Patton. ”Once I got married I decided I needed a church too. I hand-painted this church 26 years ago, when my new husband and I were living in our tiny apartment. It's been under our Christmas tree every year since."
