Help decorate our tree!
The Columbia County News-Times has a Christmas tree in our lobby, but we need ornaments. We're looking for individual photos -- wallet-size school pictures are fine -- of smiling Columbia County children to decorate the tree. We'll publish the photos as ornaments on a printed "tree" in our Dec. 23 issue, and one child will be chosen to be the "star" of the tree.
Bring or mail a photo to The News-Times' office in the Publix shopping center, 4272 Washington Road, Suite 3B, Evans, GA 30809. Photos also may be e-mailed to email@example.com.
Hurry! All photos must be received by noon Dec. 17.
