The holidays are upon us, and now is a great time to deck the halls with wreaths aplenty! Check an item off your holiday to-do list while also sharing in a ‘noble’ island tradition. For 27 years running, Orcas Montessori School has brought these beautiful 24” noble fir wreaths to the shores of Orcas Island.
Handcrafted in Washington, they are decorated with fragrant juniper berries, yellow tipped incense cedar, and pine cones, and then finished off with a rich red velvet bow. They smell delicious, last for months, and are a special, festive way to welcome folks into your home or business during this heartwarming time of year.
The wreath sale is a critical piece of Orcas Montessori School’s annual fundraising efforts. Support local early childhood education and purchase a wreath or two for your home or business. They make excellent gifts too. Consider surprising a loved one with a wreath to grace their front door, or offering one as a unique “thank you” to an important colleague who has made a particular impact on your business this year.
Purchase your $30 wreath at Ray’s Pharmacy, Con’s Pit Stop and Orcas Food Co-op. You may also place an order online at https://www.orcasmontessori.org/wreath and by phone by contacting Orcas Montessori School at (360) 376-5350. Web and phone orders can be picked up on Nov. 20 or Dec. 4 in the parking lot of the Catholic Church. Arrangements can also be made for OMS families to make local on-island deliveries. The Orcas Montessori School is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
