AYAM to Participate in Holiday Ornament Contest

AYAM is honored to be able to participate in state Representative Jim Murphy's holiday ornament decorating contest. Every year the Speaker of the House organizes the Lone Star Christmas Tree that is displayed in the House of Representatives chamber in the Capitol in Austin.

Each Representative submits an ornament to hang on the tree. This year Team Murphy invites the SBISD community to participate in the 2nd Annual Ornament Decorating Contest. The 2013 theme is "Fun and Games on the Buffalo Bayou."

The "winning" ornament will hang on the Lone Star Christmas Tree in the state capital.  The remaining ornaments will be hung on the Christmas tree in Memorial City Mall. Individuals of all ages, organizations, schools and businesses are welcome to participate. As part of the contest, AYAM will be hosting two ornament decorating events.
  • The first decorating event will be for adults on Tuesday evening, Sept. 24 (7:00pm until 9:00pm).
  • The second event will be a family event on Saturday morning, Sept. 28 (10:00am until noon)  
Basic supplies will be provided but bring your own creative ideas and additional supplies.

Beginning September 9, contest participants may pick up ornament kits (while supply lasts), as well as drop-off their MAM donations at Memorial City Mall's Guest Services or at AYAM during regular business hours.

Completed ornaments are due to either of these locations by Oct.17th.

Participants are encouraged to provide a a donation of unopened toiletries (toothpaste,toothbrush,deodorant, bar soap) that Team Murphy deliver to Memorial Assistance Ministries (MAM).

Contact Deanna Harrington for additional details or if you have a group who would like to participate.
