Stop and see the trees
Over 20 beautifully decorated Christmas trees are in place in the reading area at the west end of the library, so let the contest begin. Entries have been received from individuals, families, clubs and businesses with proceeds from the event benefiting Solon Habitat for Humanity. Tree themes run the gambit, from Victorian, to a beach holiday, to the 1980s. There is also a dog tree, a tree for Cubs fans, several with nature themes, and of course, a tree with the Spartan theme.
Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place as well at the humanity award. Trees will be judged for placement by the tree committee, which is newly formed and will take the place of the public vote from previous years. The community will vote for the humanity award.
A silent auction will be held for the trees through noon, Dec. 10.
