Annual Holiday Ornament

Print

The annual custom-designed 2015 city of Grand Prairie holiday ornament is handmade this year by Rebecca Jensen, wife of Mayor Ron Jensen. Mrs. Jensen used wood discs she personally cut from felled cedar tree branches on their Grand Prairie property, painted using blackboard paint and decorated for the holidays.

The 2015 ornament comes in a bag of three and sells for $10. You may select from those already chalked with Noel, Peace and Love, or select three blank discs and decorate them yourself. Chalk included. Proceeds benefit the Lone Star Charitable Foundation, which grants money to Grand Prairie charities. The ornaments may be purchased at:

  • City Hall, 317 College St. 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday-Friday
  • Tourist Center, 2170 N. Belt Line Road, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday
  • Warmack Library, 760 Bardin Road, hours vary, check gptx.org/library
  • The Main Library, 901 Conover, hours vary, check gptx.org/library
  • The Summit, 2975 Esplanade, 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., Monday-Saturday

The ornament series was created by Janice England, wife of retired Mayor Charles England, as a way to celebrate Grand Prairie and raise funds for local charities. Proceeds benefit the Lone Star Charitable Foundation, which grants money to Grand Prairie charities.
