The Story of the 1990
Mayor’s Christmas Tree Ornament

The 1990 Mayor’s Christmas Tree ornament–the 10th in a series– began as part of a 95-foot-tall Douglas fir.  The tree grew in an Oregon forest of Willamette Industries, where it was selected by Crown Center as tall enough and regal enough to be the 1989 Mayor’s Christmas Tree.

The tree traveled to Crown Center Square, where it was decorated with 3,800 lights and 900 red and gold ornaments, to symbolize the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund, a citywide charity that helps make the season merrier for those less fortunate.  After the holidays, the tree was cut into lumber at the Frank Purcell Walnut Lumber Company, then designed into ornaments by artists at Hallmark Cards.

What’s tucked inside this box is a special reminder of Kansas City’s Christmas spirit–a limited-edition Hallmark Keepsake ornament.  While commemorative ornaments benefiting the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund have been produced for 10 years, this is only the fourth year the ornament has been made out of wood from the previous year’s tree.

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