Holiday Trees

Christmas treeThe Shafer Gallery Christmas Tree Decorating Program began in 1992, the gallery's inaugural year. Over the years, local doctors, banks, businessmen and individuals have donated the trees.

Trees are decorated by area school children and organizations. Most trees follow a theme such as creative classrooms, native woodlands, or cowboy culture.

Contact Dave Barnes at the Gallery if you have a class or organization that would like to participate.

Please attend the 2012 Holiday Open House "Festival of Trees", Sunday, Dec. 9.
