The City of Athens and its partners – Lowe’s, Athens-Limestone Tourism, Spirit of Athens, Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful and Limestone County Archives – will kick off this new holiday event in December.
Athens Parks and Recreation workers are installing 15 live trees at the Duck Pond behind the Tourism office in downtown Athens.
Keep Athens-Limestone Beautiful Executive Coordinator Lynne Hart said she is proud the event will be environmentally friendly.
Lowe’s Athens store contacted the Mayor’s Office about donating live Christmas trees to the city for a public display.
There are three non-profit groups seeking a business sponsor: Girl Scout Troop 1922, Clements High School and Team Victory 4 All. Those who decorate will have to use solar lights, and the committee is purchasing solar lights to sell to groups that do not have time to order them. The KALB board members are putting their recycling skills to use by making at least one snowman and maybe more out of recycled tires to add to the North Pole stroll decor. The Athens Arts League is sponsoring a giant postcard that will be painted by artist Ashley Bates, operator of Ashley Bates Art, which is located in High Cotton Arts.
Athens-Limestone County Tourism Association Director Teresa Todd said she is impressed with the number of organizations that have come together to turn Lowe’s donation into a free holiday project for the community.
