Two trees take top spots at Christmas auction

Two trees were awarded People's Choice in last year's Christmas Tree Lane, a fundraising event held at the Nolan Center during the run-up to the holiday. Trees and other holiday displays are decorated and contributed by community members, then sold off through a silent auction process. This year 15 trees were up for bid, as were three other decorative displays. In addition to sprucing up the Nolan Center lobby for a few weeks, the $1,000 raised through this year's auction went toward Hospice of Wrangell, a service which provides medical equipment and care support to community members. Those winning bids on the items then were able to bring their trees home before the start of Christmas. Participants in the auction chose two as their favorites, one of which was anonymously donated and was decorated with handcrafted Andean ornaments. The other was put together by the Stikine Stitchers, and featured a Christmassy quilt and tree skirt of their handiwork, as well as a variety of handmade ornaments. A third tree won the Kids Choice pick, a tree entered by the Carney family called "Made with Love."
