Each year the First Lady of Georgia chooses a theme for the Christmas décor at the Governor’s Mansion.
The goal is for each one of Georgia’s 159 counties to have an ornament hanging in the Governor’s Mansion during the Christmas tours.
This Christmas season, Mrs. Deal asked each county to send an ornament highlighting its county’s historic courthouse. She also asked for an ornament from a child. Information was sent to all area high schools requesting a submission of the historical courthouse. Area fourth grade students were invited to create an ornament for submission as well.
Of all the ornaments submitted locally, Pepperell High’s Morgan Davis’ historic courthouse will be sent to the Governor’s Mansion to represent the Floyd County courthouse.
Three other ornaments representing the work of a child will be sent as well. Those are the work of fourth graders Brinzlee Painter of Armuchee Elementary, Andrew Neal of East Central Elementary and Sam Ross of Pepperell Elementary.
The remaining ornaments will decorate trees in Floyd County government offices and will be on display to the public.
