Christmas is in the air at the Webster Museum

10 Nov

It’s going to look a lot like Christmas very soon at the Webster Museum.

christmas treeThe museum’s 2018 Christmas Tree Contest is gearing up. This is a chance for local businesses, community agencies and organizations to get creative and decorate a 4-foot tall Christmas tree in any theme they see fit.

In previous years there have been as many as 20 or more little trees sprinkled throughout the museum, gaily festooned with such a variety of materials that I can’t even begin to summarize them. They make the museum beautiful and a delight to walk through. But the best part is, the public is encouraged to vote for their favorite. The winning organization(s) get $25 prizes.

But for now, the museum needs people who want to do the decorating.  Scouts, families, clubs, groups, or individuals can register to decorate a tree. The trees can be decorated using a room theme from the museum exhibits or any other ideas. Prizes will be awarded in both adult and youth categories.

The trees must be decorated before Friday November 30 and voting begins the evening of Dec 1 as part of the Village of Webster’s White Christmas celebration. Voting continues until the end of December during regular museum hours.

Decorating times are Saturday Nov 24 from 2 to 4:30 p.m., Tuesday Nov. 27 from 2 to 4:30 p.m., Wednesday Nov. 28 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., and Thursday Nov. 29 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Please call 347-4202 to register a tree, and if you’d like to schedule a different time.

The Webster Museum is located at 18 Lapham Park in the Village of Webster.
