The 3rd Annual District 133 Ornament Decorating ContestA Saturday Morning at the Altharetta Yeargin Art Museum (Oct. 11 from 10 a.m. to noon)
Badge Opportunities for Scouts! Sponsored by State Rep. Jim Murphy
What?Participate in Rep. Murphy’s 3rd Annual Ornament Decorating Contest to find our district’s contribution to the House Chamber Christmas Tree in the Capitol Building in Austin. Our 2014 theme is “Dreaming of a Buffalo Bayou Christmas.”
Why?The "winning" ornament goes to Austin. Ornaments that don’t go to Austin will be showcased on our Community Christmas Tree at Memorial City Mall.
Where?The Altharetta Yeargin Art Museum (located at 901 Yorkchester 77024) is hosting an ornament decorating event tailored for scouts, but open to the public. Join in on the fun Saturday, October 11 from 10 a.m. until noon. Ornaments and basic decorating supplies will be available. Feel free to bring your own embellishments! Reservations are not required but are helpful to ensure enough ornament supplies.
Attention Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts: All five levels of Girl Scouts can fulfill requirements to earn their Community Badge! Arrive a few minutes early and grab a seat to hear Rep. Murphy speak from 10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. speak about Texas government and the legislative process. Cub Scouts, Webelos and Boy Scouts should talk with their Den Leader or Scout Master about what badge requirements can be met by listening to Rep. Murphy and decorating an ornament.
Early Birds: Ornament kits are available now (while supply lasts) at Memorial City Mall’s Guest Services Desk by the clock tower in the mall. The deadline to have an ornament considered for the House Chamber Christmas tree is October 20. Late entries will still be hung on our Community Christmas tree in Memorial City Mall.
The ornaments will be judged by three individuals from District 133. The top three ornament artists will receive a prize.
