Make a holiday statement in decorated tree contest


Make a holiday statement with decorated tree

Clubs, organizations and businesses are invited to participate in the annual Holiday in the Gardens on Dec. 4 at the Nature Coast Botanical Gardens, 1489 Parker Ave. Participants decorate an evergreen tree on the grounds. Each organization should provide its own waterproof decorations without lights because electricity is not available in most areas. Also, participants are encouraged to select a distinctive decorating theme to represent their organization. The botanical gardens will provide a sign with each organization's information. There will be a contest for the best decorated tree that will continue through Dec. 24. The cost to participate is $25. Call (352) 683-9933.

The NatureCoast Coalition for Peace and Justice will demonstrate from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday at the corner of Commercial Way and Cortez Boulevard, across from Weeki Wachee Springs State Park.
