Zion Lutheran supports TCHS O’Tannenbaum Exhibit

Dashown Polite and his classmates in second and third grade decorate their Woodland tree.

For the last several years, students at Zion Lutheran School have been supporting the Tioga County Historical Society (TCHS) by decorating trees.  Each class has made their own tree or wreath to support the exhibit.

Themes have varied through the years, but there has always been support by the staff and families in participating.  From pre-k through sixth grade, the children enjoy the field trip to go and decorate.

Principal Janet Pawlak stated, “It is a good lesson to learn at a young age to make or bring things that are for others. It teaches the children to help others in the community.”

The TCHS O’Tannenbaum exhibit is open Wednesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the TCHS Musuem located at 110 Front St. in Owego.

The O’Tannenbaum Holiday Showcase is a Fundraiser where the public can enjoy looking at the trees, wreaths, and other decorations, and then bid on them as a silent auction. The final night to bid is Dec. 13.
