Decorated Trees

A forest of decorated trees will have grown in the Grand Hall of the Opera House during the Holiday Traditions Tour.  Always delightful to tour, the trees come from individuals, community groups, and businesses.  The trees come to us in all sizes so no tree is too small!  Please contact Sue at 517/420-4273 if you’d like to share your decorated tree during the tour.
