Trees on display this year are “Creative Chaos by Ashe County High School art students and their teacher Amber Dillingham, “A Dollmaker’s Christmas” by the High Country Doll Artists, “Love for Animals” which celebrates the work of the Ashe Humane Society, “A Jewish Santa Claus Tree” by Peggy Brandt, “A Christmas Card Christmas” by Ashe Opportunities and “A Blue Christmas” by Wesley Barker.
