Gurley Community Welcomes Christmas


December 8, 2021

What started as an accident involving a wayward truck has developed into a community event for the village of Gurley.

About three years ago, a truck-trailer collided with a tree, and the cemetery.

In removing the damaged tree, the suggestion was made children be invited to decorate the new tree. A Blue Spruce tree was located between the Community Center and the elementary school. Each year students and children of the community are invited to decorate the tree. This year, their work and creativity was thanked with homemade and donated cookies.

The hope is to grow the event each year.
