For many years Teresa Henry was been a member of the Blue Ridge Arts Council. Her favorite event is the Christmas Tree event, “Deck the Halls”. She helps decorate the trees and wreaths, working on their holiday window theme.
Deck the Halls is an annual event for Blue Ridge Arts Council. Christmas trees and wreaths are decorated by community members then sold for a fundraiser. The gallery of Blue Ridge Arts Council is transformed into a holiday wonderland. Deck the Halls has proven to be a tremendous success over the past 14 years. Hundreds of volunteers participate in this event each year by artistically decorating artificial trees and wreaths based on clever themes such as “Owl Be Home for Christmas” and “Silver Splendor.” Last year we had over 100 items, including trees, wreaths, and silent auction baskets netting over $10,000 for our programs.
