Samantha Doolin, the coordinator for Glen Carbon Heritage Museum, said they wanted to get people in the museum for the holidays and she thought why not have businesses and clubs submit trees they could put in the museum decorated with colorful lights?

“I am happy with the response we have had,” she said. “We have had 18 trees contributed and sponsored by everyone from the Glen Carbon Police Association, to Twisted Biscuit and Heartland Animal Hospital and many more.
