Get ready to see the West Library, decorated and lit up in 50 different little Christmas trees representing their own themes. This year, is a start of a new tradition at Texas Wesleyan University; fun and new joyous participation from students, staff, and faculty. Even though the deadline of picking up a tree from the West Library has passed, the participants rather they are individuals or groups have until Next Monday, Nov. 18 to return their trees.

The trees will be displayed at the Reference Area counter for all the school to see until Dec. 4 when the top three winners will be announced.

“The Christmas tree decorating contest came about because we do the meals on wheels giving tree, every year with the meals on wheels clients. We just wanted to use the Christmas theme and get everybody into the Christmas spirit by decorating Christmas trees. We’re using it as a kick off for the Meals on Wheels giving tree.” Sheri Parker, Coordinator of Operations of the West Library cheerfully exclaimed.

At the end of the contest the participants may either pick up their tree between December 5-13 or they can donate their tree to be purchased. Donated trees will be sold for $15 each, and all the proceeds will be given to Tarrant County Meals on Wheels.
