City of Sequim seeking ornaments for holiday tree

All fourth grade or nine-year-old students in the Sequim School District, including homeschool students and those attending private schools, are invited to create an ornament to decorate the holiday tree that will be displayed at the Sequim Civic Center, 152 W. Cedar St. from Dec. 3-Jan. 2022.

The theme for all student-created ornaments is “The Importance of Kindness.”

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 6 inches-by 6 inches-by 6 inches.

There are no color restrictions. All ornaments must have a loop (wire, ribbon or cord) so they may be easily hung on the tree.

Students must turn in their ornament and entry form to their teacher by Monday, Nov. 22. Arts Advisory Commission member Maggie Hall Taylor will pick them up from each school at a pre-arranged time.

The holiday tree will be on display and decorated by Friday, Dec. 3. All students will receive a special commemorative card as a “thank you” remembrance for their participation when their ornaments are returned in January.

Full participation details and information are available on the City of Sequim’s website at Flyers are being distributed through the Sequim School District’s fourth grade classes, the Sequim Boys & Girls Club and at selected shops in downtown Sequim.

For more information, contact Taylor at 818-414-4437 or, or marketing coordinator Patsene Dashiell at 360-681-3421 or pdashiell@
