Sequim seeks ornaments created by fourth-grade students

SEQUIM — All fourth-grade or 9-year-old students living within the boundaries of the Sequim School District are invited to create an ornament to help decorate the city’s holiday tree.

The tree will be on display in the Sequim Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar St., from Dec. 1 through the first of January.

The tree will be lit at 5 p.m. Dec. 1. Attendees will see scenes from “The Nutcracker” performed by the Sequim Ballet and a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

Ornaments are to be delivered to the Sequim Civic Center between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 27. If needed, arrangements for an alternative delivery day or time can be arranged.

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

Any materials are acceptable for the ornaments as long as they are dry. 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 5 inches by 5 inches by 5 inches.

There are no color restrictions. All ornaments must be presented with a loop made of wire, ribbon or cord for attachment of a hanging hook.

The tree lighting and reception for all student participants and their parents will be held in conjunction with the First Friday Art Walk from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Dec. 1.

All students will receive a commemorative card as a thank-you when their ornaments are returned in January. No financial compensation will be offered to any participant.

The third annual holiday tree decorating event is sponsored by the Sequim City Arts Advisory Commission.

Full participation details and information are available on the city website at www.sequimwa.gov. Flyers are being distributed through fourth-grade classes, the Sequim unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula and at selected shops in downtown Sequim.

For more information, contact either City Clerk Karen Kuznek-Reese at 360-681-3428 or [email protected], or Sharon DelaBarre at 360-683-6592 or [email protected]
