Evelyn Frye | Hang the tree first


The Tribune-Democrat

— “I’m so grateful that I have a big family that comes to stay with me during the holidays,” wrote Evelyn Frye of Westwood. “But my house is so small that all of us don’t fit with a Christmas tree, too. I had the idea to make a wall-mounted tree. About 21 years ago, my son-in-law, Jeff DeLisa, cut plywood into a triangle shape, painted it green, added holes for lights and screwed in cup hooks, which allow me to display my favorite ornaments. My hanging tree puts me in the holiday spirit every year.”

Throughout the month of December, The Tribune-Democrat will be running photos and stories of favorite decorations as submitted by our readers.

The decorations will be featured on our front page. Those not published will appear on our website.

To participate, send your photos and information to Arlene Johns at ajohns@trib­dem.com or mail to The Tribune-Democrat, P.O. Box 340, Johnstown, PA 15907.
