I went to Crown Center the other day, and I asked the nice people at the Customer Service Center what this year's design is. They just got it finalized that day and had to be sure they could tell me before they did.

It's a skate like a figure skater would wear!

They know the event is coming up soon so they have their stock of previous year ornaments ready to go. They have run out of the green and red slips of paper that go with them to tell the history of the ornaments and what the charity does. If you buy some ornaments and don't get these, let me know and I'll send you a copy.

They know they'll be getting people turning in preorders for this year's ornaments while people are in town for the event.

If you're coming to the event and haven't been to the Crown Center Customer Service Center and need directions finding it let me know. It's tucked away in a corner so you may need some help. The best thing is it's next to the fudge store. The scent is free but getting a piece of that delicious candy isn't...

Yes Erika there is a Snowtop lodge ornament exclusive to KC, along with BBQ, (I think) look on Digitaldreambook.com. The Crown Center Hallmark is taking orders along with pins. Give them a call.
See you in a couple of weeks! Can't wait.

I pre-ordered the Snowtop Lodge. They said they would contact me for credit card info after Premiere (too busy that day!). I've been eagerly awaiting their call. I plan on picking mine up at the event.

Bumping this up since the ornaments go on sale this Friday at 10 AM at the Crown Center Customer Service Center.

For those who don't know, the Mayor's Christmas Tree Fund is a citywide effort to help those who need it this time of year. They get help from individuals and groups, and this is one of their fundraisers.

Hallmark has made these ornaments since 1981. For several years they took an acrylic ornament that had appeared in their regular line and redid it to include the Mayor's Christmas Tree words on it. In 1986 they started reusing the wood from the previous year's tree to make the ornaments. At least one year they ran out of ornaments and used some wood left from a previous year to make the ornaments. These ornaments always come in a nice package, and since each one comes from a tree they are unique in the pattern of the rings from the tree.

Last year the shipments of ornaments ordered before this week started arriving before Thanksgiving.

Here's a picture of this year's ornament. I got to thinking today that maybe the idea of an ice skate was inspired by the fact that Kansas City was the site of this year's US Nationals skating championship.
