Jehan Zouak wants to create a fab ’50s Christmas at Sidney Museum.
To build the ultimate display for December, the volunteer decorator is in search of an aluminum tree.
“Every December the museum puts on a teddy bear display, and this year I thought it would be nice to include the history of an aspect of Christmas,” Zouak said.
“I decided to do an exhibit of the popular trends for Christmas trees and related trimmings for five decades, from the 1920s through the 1960s.”
For the ’50s, the museum is on the hunt for a white or silver aluminum tree to go with her cool blue and green tones.
“Unfortunately we are having trouble locating a tree to use,” she said. “I think some people still have them from all those decades ago and they are sitting in basements and attics.
“We would love to borrow one for the exhibit and bring it back to its former glory as a cherished part of the holiday season.”
To loan or donate a tree, or for more information call the Sidney Museum at 250-655-6355.
