    Winter Wonderland was a beautiful display of decorated Christmas Trees from various Countries which I was more than impressed when I visited the Fernbank in Jan. 2011. I am a docent at the Minneapolis Institute of Art and would like to have a similar display at our museum. Did the Fernbank have a Co. decorate the Trees and purchase them? I congratulate Mr. Paul McParland.
    Thank you,
    Sharon Richardson
