ORNAMENTS FOR HALLOWEEN TREE
Our club will create ornaments to trim a small tree for Generations for their fundraiser held on October 16, 2018. Since the
tree will be 32 inches tall, we need to keep the ornaments on the smaller side. In addition to tree ornaments, larger non-
ornament carvings can be placed around the tree. The theme for the woodcarvings should be "fall," "Halloween," or "Elvis."
Turn in your woodcarvings by the October meeting. Keep in mind that this is a donation, and Generations will use it as a
fundraiser. Check here for some ornaments already turned in.

the tree with ornaments as one unit or sell individual ornaments/carvings.
