Local community groups have been decorating Christmas trees to celebrate the upcoming holiday season for the North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum. Members of the Grand Strand Keepsake Collectors Club, Current Transitions and the North Myrtle Beach Sea Turtle Patrol decorated trees last week at the museum. Additional groups are scheduled to decorate trees in the coming weeks.
The Grand Strand Keepsake Collector’s Club provided Keepsake ornaments and a golden crown tree topper. Their mission statement is to bring together collectors of Hallmark© ornaments and other collectibles to share and exchange knowledge about collectibles for the enjoyment of the members and to provide an opportunity for associating with other collectors.
A group of young adults from Current Transitions made all their ornaments with a woodland fairies theme. Their mission is to expand opportunities and enhance the quality of life for individuals who have intellectual delays by providing training and coaching in critical live skills within a safe and friendly environment.
The North Myrtle Beach Sea Turtle Patrol offered handmade seashell ornaments to decorate their tree. The North Myrtle Beach Sea Turtle Patrol was organized in 2010 and is an all volunteer group working for the preservation of endangered sea turtles.
Make plans to stop by the museum before the holiday season ends to view the trees. The museum hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
