tree decorating contest was held by the resort employees to raise money
for needy families in the Branson community. There were 3 trees that
you could vote for....The one on the first floor of the Welk hotel, pictured
above, was decorated with pictures and ornaments in remembrance of Mr.
Welk. There was also a big portrait of Lawrence by the tree.
Voting was done via contributions and the tree that 'raises' the most money
will be the winner.
