Giving Pickle Tree Ornaments
Generations of Westmont students have passed beneath the towering tree on Kerrwood Lawn known affectionately as the Pickle Tree. Its annual Christmas lighting became a community celebration. After years of drought, the tree was removed for safety.
Now the redwood is finding a new life as an ornament.
A Westmont community member is hand crafting ornaments from the beautiful wood. To help today’s Westmont students with financial resources many depend on, we are dedicating the ornaments as a thank you to friends who make a gift of $50 or more (or a monthly gift of $10 or more) to the Westmont Fund, the lifeblood of student scholarships.
Thank you for supporting current students! Enjoy bringing a piece of Westmont’s history and natural beauty into your home.
Please note that these ornaments are being hand-produced throughout the month and mailed from Westmont, but we can't guarantee shipping times during the holidays.
