Ornaments for Sequim’s holiday tree due by Nov. 25

SEQUIM — The Sequim City Arts Advisory Commission invites fourth-grade, or 9-year-old, students to create an ornament to place on the city’s tree.

Students must live within the Sequim School District’s boundaries.

The tree will be on display from Dec. 6 through Jan. 1 at Sequim Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar St.

The theme for the student-created ornaments is “Nature’s Creatures: Real or Mythical.”

Any materials are acceptable as long as they are dry, but no live entries, candles, batteries or flammable materials are allowed.

Ornaments can be no smaller than 2 inches by 2 inches by 2 inches and no larger than 6 inches by 6 inches by 6 inches.

All ornaments must be presented with a loop of wire, ribbon or cord for attachment of a hanging hook.

Ornaments should be delivered to Sequim Civic Center between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25.

The tree lighting and official reception for student participants and their parents will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6.

All ornaments will be returned in January.
