Christmas trees coming to City Hall, Commons

Columbus city crews and Franks Tree Service on Friday will be harvesting the Christmas trees donated by local residents to decorate City Hall and The Commons,

Michael Nolting, spokesman for the city, says the 22-foot blue spruce that will decorate City Hall is being donated by Lee Ann Mitchell of Yellowood Court. She said she is donating the tree in memory of her late husband Greg, who died unexpectedly this fall from liver cancer.

Shelley and Jerry Coomer of North Gladstone Avenue are donating a 15-foot tall blue spruce that will be displayed at The Christmas Village at The Commons. Nolting said the family has decorated the tree for many years, but it finally got too big for the family to handle.
