Public invited to vote for favorite Christmas Trees at Dubois County Museum

Be sure to stop in at the Dubois County Museum this holiday season and see all the holiday beauty displayed. And, while you are there, be sure to grab a ballot and vote for your favorite decorated tree. 

The public is invited to pick their top three favorite trees — hard choice for sure — amond the 39 decorated trees around the museum. Seventeen trees are arranged around the community mural on the east side of the museum, with the communities of Cuzco, Hillham, Nicholson Valley and Crystal representing Columbia Township and sharing the Haysville mural as they contemplate a future mural for Columbia Township. It is surely a sight to see all those tree glowing.

Twenty-two trees are then placed with exhibits and displays. Don’t miss the trees decorated with a theme for veterans, wildlife, German immigration-Sister Cities, Victorian parlor, Latino community, children, Old World Santa ornaments and much more. 

The “Remembering Christmas” temporary exhibit has wonderful memories of Christmas written by county residents.  Be sure to write your memory and submit it to Cheryl Sermersheim at or bring to museum. Include your name and possibly the year of your memory.  

Voting for the Christmas trees will continue till December 23, with winners being announced via Facebook. Trees were all decorated by volunteers. A box of chocolates will be given to each winning tree’s decorators.
