There will be a wonderful array of holiday trees, wreaths and centerpieces available by way of silent auction.

There also will be several special trees this year; a 7-inch tree adorned with homemade decorations donated by Pieces From the Heart Quilt Guild; Chicago Bears tree donated by Morris Area Garden Club; a delightful woodland tree adorned with owls donated by Reeves Baskerville Funeral Homes; a tree bejeweled with handcrafted glass ornaments created by Sarah Kleinfelt Fisher; a beautiful Holiday Table Setting for four donated by Lawrence Advertising; and gumball machines donated by Northwestern Corporation. And don’t forget a “A Night at the Movies” tree with all the goodies donated by Sandi Dransfeldt.

There are exciting raffle items this year, such as an iPad Mini donated by Century 21 Coleman-Hornsby and a Keurig coffee machine, which are on display now at the museum. Raffle tickets are available for $1 each, or six for $5. Don’t forget to enter your entrance ticket for a chance to win some holiday door prizes too!
