Local designer leads campaign to show support for troops

The "A Light in the Window" campaign candles at Stoney Broke, Ltd.

Decorative lights are a part of the holiday season, a reminder that Christmas is coming. But one local woman is hoping to make a special decorative light a year-round reminder of the sacrifices made by military families.

Joye Adamson, a former military wife and a designer at Stoney Broke, Ltd. in the Village Shops, has been promoting an initiative to show support for our troops for almost a year. Dubbed “A Light in the Window,” the campaign encourages people to display a flickering electric candle at their homes as a way to show continued support for soldiers and their families.

Campaign candles are available for purchase at Stoney Broke, Ltd., and come with an original poem commissioned for the campaign printed on a vintage-inspired card.

Stoney Broke, Ltd., has committed 20 percent of profits from all of its sales to The Wounded Warrior Project, a national organization that offers support to returning troops.
