Downtown Florence is the place to be this holiday season and Florence Main Street is adding to the fun with a project involving local children and decorating the Florence Christmas Tree.
Main Street is collaborating with Florence City Schools 3rd grade classes at Weeden, Harlan, Forest Hills Elementary schools. Every 3rd grader will create a Christmas ornament out of recycled materials and each class will create one 20×20 ornament to decorate Wilson Park. Recycled materials have been donated by City of Florence Recycling Department, The Surprise Store, Pegasus Records, Florence-Lauderdale Public Library, Alabama Chanin, Nicole Nicole Clothing & Design, and Scarborough Doors.
Donated materials and representation:
Keys: Key to the City
CD’s: Music Heritage
Water Bottles: TN River
Fabric: Fashion Industry
Books: Great Authors of Florence
The class ornaments will be hung before the lighting of the Florence Christmas Tree on Friday, December 5th at 7:00pm. We invite the community to come to Wilson Park to see what our children have made for the holidays.
