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 enjoy 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.”

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.

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