Help decorate our tree!
The Columbia County News-Times office has a Christmas tree in the lobby, but we need ornaments. We're looking for photos - wallet-size school pictures are fine - of smiling Columbia County children to decorate our tree. We'll also publish the photos as ornaments on a printed "tree" in our Christmas Day issue, and one child will be chosen to be the "star" of the tree.
Bring or mail a photo to our office in the Publix shopping center, 4272 Washington Road, Suite 3B, Evans, GA 30809. Photos may also be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hurry! The deadline for photos is Monday.
