Main Street Wellington, Inc. is again decorating a live evergreen tree to honor the men and women who serve in the military, police, fire, or as EMT. The ornaments display names of Wellington area individuals who are currently serving, Veterans, or heroes who have passed. The tree will be displayed in the Wellington Gazebo in front of the historic Town Hall throughout the holiday season.
The tree has been generously donated by Kurtz Christmas Tree Farm located at 22350 Quarry Road in Wellington. The Kurtz Christmas Tree Farm has been a Wellington fixture for over 45 years and will be open 10-7 daily starting the day after Thanksgiving. They sell a variety of Christmas trees, wreaths, and white pine roping for indoor and outdoor decorating. It is one of the few places in the area where you can choose and cut your own tree up to 12 feet tall.
"We appreciate the efforts of Sara and Jay Eastman, from the Norton-Eastman Funeral Home, who coordinate the ornament painting and tree trimming. Boy Scout Troop 414 will also join other volunteers to decorate the tree," said Jennifer Arntz, Executive Director of Main Street Wellington. "We also want to thank Scott Markel, and the Village employees for installing and maintaining the tree throughout the season." We are scheduled to decorate the tree on Monday, November 28th at 6:00 p.m.
To add a name to the tree, please fill out the box below or call Main Street Wellington at 440-647-3987. Main Street Wellington staff and volunteers will cross reference our list to the ornaments to make sure we have every ornament accounted for as some ornaments are taken or blown away by the wind. Below is the list as of 11/18/2016. Please check the list prior to sending in names. Thank you!
