School children lend a hand in decorating 1st Christmas tree at Town Hall
For the first time Denton Town Hall is proudly displaying one of the prettiest trees in town, thanks to the help of Denton Elementary students who took time to color and create some amazing ornaments. Assistant Clerk Elizabeth Elswick was the mastermind behind the project. She thought it would be a wonderful activity for the students and a fun way to spread holiday cheer. Town Clerk Angel Jenkins and Deputy Clerk Robin Garrison helped hang the hundreds of brightly colored ornaments and they encourage everyone to stop by and check out their beautiful tree and share some holiday cheer!
