[DEC. 10, 2004]  The Logan County Christmas tree project in the Logan County Courthouse is being sponsored by Logan County residents again this holiday season. The 12-foot tree is displayed annually throughout the holiday season, beginning in November. Ornaments have all been donated by area residents.

Churches, businesses, families, schools, service clubs, organizations and individuals are again encouraged to donate an ornament.

  • The ornament should not exceed 6 inches square or weigh more than 8 ounces.

  • All ornaments must be submitted in an appropriate box for future storage.

  • All ornaments will be identified, labeled and recorded in a permanent register on display at the tree location.

This year people are encouraged to donate pictures of individuals or family members for display as "photo ornaments." Please submit photos, with identification, in an envelope. Frames will be handmade to fit the photographs. Each photo ornament will be identified, labeled and recorded in the permanent register displayed at the tree location. The photo ornaments will be stored with the other ornaments and displayed year after year.

Label information sheets may be picked up at the security desk at the Logan County Courthouse or by contacting Mrs. Ted (Judy) Awe, 123 Crestwood Drive, Lincoln, IL 62656-1360; phone (217) 732-4758. A label sheet is also available by clicking here.
