Released by The City of Tyler:
TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The 2010 edition of a series of limited-edition collectible ornaments is now available for sale to the public. Proceeds from the sale of this year's ornament, which depicts the historic Christ Episcopal Church, help fund the City of Tyler Main Street Program.
"These ornaments are always a much-anticipated part of the Christmas season for many people," said Main Street Department Leader Beverly Abell. "They've collected these ornaments since the very first year and don't want to miss any of them," she added.
The glass ornaments bear the wording "Christmas in Tyler 2010" and feature a reproduction of a photo of the church as it was in years past, Abell said. All ornaments are hand-numbered, and each ornament is boxed and comes with a description of the church's history.
"We want to emphasize that these ornaments are very limited," Abell said. "We have ordered a series of only 750 ornaments; once they are gone, they're gone. And they will never be reproduced."
The ornaments are priced at $10 each. Small acrylic stands for display are available at $5 each, with all proceeds going to Tyler Main Street and its programs, including Gallery Main Street.
A small number of ornaments from some years past are available, including the Old Smith County Courthouse ornament from 2007 and the Goodman-LeGrand 150th anniversary ornament from 2009.
Ornaments will be available at: Gallery Main Street, 110 W. Erwin; Tyler Chamber of Commerce, 315 N. Broadway; Cotton Belt Depot, 210 E. Oakwood; Cole & Co., 4855 Old Bullard Road and Little Bird Gallery, 1721 S. Broadway.
