On some nights, all of Jerrold Avenue in Arden Hills is lit up thanks to Marty Gerr’s handiwork.
Marty recalls his daughter driving him home from one of his many hospital stays during the past year, and seeing every one of the solar light holders he’d carved for each of his neighbors shining brightly in the night.
Marty, an avid wood carver, has carved many clever little contraptions in his basement woodshed over the years. In addition to the 65 solar light holders he passed out to neighbors, friends and family members, he’s built broomholders, toys for neighborhood kids, whistles and most recently, a Little Free Library for his neighborhood.
