'Tis the season for the 4th annual Christmas tree decorating contest. West Library’s tree decorating contest kicks off Nov. 1, and this year we have 50 free trees available on a first come, first served basis.
Pick up your free mini-Christmas tree at the Circulation Desk Nov. 1-18, and bring it back with your themed decorations by Monday, Nov. 28 to display in the library.
This year’s decoration categories are:
Trees will be on display in the West Library Reference area. Judging will take place by three independent judges. All trees will remain anonymous until the winners are announced at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov 29. You may pick up your tree or donate it to be auctioned.
Is there a prize for winning? You betcha! Two prizes will be awarded in each category and a special prize for the overall most creative tree.
This year there will be a live auctioning of the trees! In a celebration on the first floor of the Library on Nov. 29 at 1:45 p.m., the awards will be announced. There will be cookies, cocoa, a visit from Santa and a photo booth. Joe Brown will be the official auctioneer so it’s sure to be entertaining! Each tree will have a beginning bid of $10 and all proceeds will go to Tarrant County Meals On Wheels.
A fun time is guaranteed for all!
