Christmas Around the World

Christmas Around the World

Every year for about the past 14, the Harlingen Arts & Heritage Museum has provided the local community with the opportunity to create and display a decorated Christmas Tree for the greater community’s holiday enjoyment. It’s the annual Christmas Tree Extravaganza. Anyone can participate – individual, family, businesses, organizations, clubs, sororities, etc.

This is La Posada’s third year to participate in the extravaganza and we have chosen to keep “Christmas Around the World “for this year’s theme. Inspired by La Posada’s diverse clientele, the tree shows ornaments decorated with the flags of clients’ countries of origin. Since 1989, La Posada has served more than 9,200 individuals from 84 home nations.

Board members Elaine Adams and Paula Olivarez made time as the busy holiday season began to set-up the tree, create ornaments and decorate the tree. Thank you for a job well done! This past Saturday, the tree of the day was La Posada’s.

The Extravaganza runs through January 2, 2018.


How Does La Posada’s Garden Grow? – Part II

Back in September, we wrote an article on two of our clients’ first time experience with gardening. Mario and Jorge planted 12 broccoli plants, 36 cabbage plants, 24 spinach plants and 3 cilantro plants. In addition, 2 rows of beets, 1 row of carrots, 1 row of radishes, and 12 hills of cucumbers were planted. It appears their harvest was plentiful!
