The Story of the 1988 Mayor’s Christmas Tree Ornament

The 1988 Mayor’s Christmas Tree ornament began in an Oregon forest of Willamette Industries.  From there, the 90′ tall Douglas fir journeyed to Kansas City to stand on Crown Center Square as the symbol of the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund, a city-wide charity that helps make the season merrier for those less fortunate.

Decked out with 2500 lights and 900 red and gold ornaments, the festive tree brightened the holiday season for all who visited the heart of the city at Christmastime.  After the holidays were over, the tree was cut into lumber at the Frank Purcell Walnut Lumber Company, crafted into ornaments at S and K Industries, and then delivered to the talented artists at Hallmark Cards.

There the magical transformation from the lumber to ornament was completed.  What’s tucked inside this box is a special reminder of Kansas City’s Christmas spirit–a limited edition Hallmark Keepsake ornament.

All proceeds from the sale of the ornament benefit the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund.  Thank you for your contribution.
