[ARCHIVED] A Village of Volunteers Decorate Sequim for the Holidays

Holiday Lights at Pioneer Park

We like to say it takes a village to get things done in our small town of Sequim and that is definitely true when it comes to decorating for the holiday season.  Each year a team of volunteers led by Emily Westcott and Captain Crystal Stout work with the City of Sequim to locate, transport, and install the official holiday tree that resides at the city’s main intersection. Once installed, the elves (volunteers and city staff) take over decorating the tree and lighting up the town. Thank you volunteers from the hot air balloon crew, Emily's special team of current and past year volunteers, students from Sequim High School, and local church groups.  The Sequim Merchants Group raised money to purchase this year's tree, Dan Goettling  of Absolute Angle donated his crane to help put the tree in place, Home Depot donated the lift for the light crew, and Rainshadow Cafe donated coffee and hot chocolate to volunteers.

Light displays are prominent throughout the downtown core and at city parks. Take some time to wander and enjoy the displays. We appreciate everyone who donned scarves and mittens and got on bucket trucks and ladders to spread holiday cheer around Sequim!

Thank you to the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce for all of the Hometown Holiday events.  And a shout out and thank you to the Sequim Museum for organizing the annual Tractor Cruise the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  It was spectacular!
