Windom FFA 'corn tree' wins Festival of Trees event
WINDOM FFA’s “Salute to the Minnesota Corn Growers Assn.” was voted the top tree in the 2012 Festival of Trees. Even ornaments that adorned the tree were made from corn and corn cobs.
WINDOM FFA’s “Salute to the Minnesota Corn Growers Assn.” was voted the top tree in the 2012 Festival of Trees. Even ornaments that adorned the tree were made from corn and corn cobs.

The Windom FFA's "A Salute to the Minnesota Corn Growers Association" was voted the winner of the 2012 Festival of Trees in the Remick Gallery at the Cottonwood County Historical Society in Windom.

The tree was fashioned entirely of dried corn husks with ornaments made from corn kernels representing the golden harvest. The tree also featured an angel tree-topper of corn husks.

Advisor for the Windom FFA is Darcy Dahna.

Voted as runner-up was the Mickey D's Red-Hatters which again was decorated with festive miniature red hats and lights as well as purple ribbons, beads and balls.

Receiving third place was the First United Methodist Church tree. It was decorated by Sunday School children with handmade ornaments symbolizing the love that God has for us in the gift of His son, Jesus.

Each of the three winners received Windom Chamber Bucks as prizes. Remaining proceeds from the display will benefit the Cottonwood County Historical Society.

The trio of winners were among 20 trees included in this year's exhibit, the largest exhibit the Festival of Trees has ever had.

For color photos of all three trees, see the story on the back page of the Jan. 9 issue of the Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands today.
