New Underwood students decorate community center trees
The New Underwood elementary students did their part to make the New Underwood Community Center more festive Thursday, Dec. 3.
Under the direction of the elementary teachers and Meri Jo Anderson, New Underwood city finance officer, students decorated six trees that are on display in the community center. Students in first through fifth grade each decorated one tree for their class. Sixth grade and kindergarten joined forces to decorate their tree.
The decorating of the trees is a long-standing tradition for the elementary students. When the trees were decorated, the students received cookies, candy, punch or hot chocolate. The trees will now be used to accent festivities taking place at the community Center, including various Christmas parties.
