ASHE Chamber Ornament: A Holiday Tradition

Your Christmas tree won’t be complete this year without a one-of-a-kind ornament from the Ashe County Chamber of Commerce Collectors’ Series.


Seven have already been retired, but nine still remain – including this year’s beautiful tribute to the Parkway Theatre. Stop by and pick up several! Available at the Ashe County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center – or call the chamber at 846-9550 for more information.

The ornament series is a fund-raising project that helps to generate non-dues income to support the Chamber’s program of work. The series features the designs of local artist Bessie Clay and the subjects are of historical significance to Ashe County.

Each year’s edition makes its debut at the Christmas in July festival. The 2006 holiday ornament, featuring the Parkway Theatre, is the 14th in its series and is a limited edition Christmas ornament. The Special Projects Committee of the Chamber develops a new design idea every year.

The other ornaments in the series are: Ashe County Courthouse; The New River at Sharpe’s Falls Dam; The Virginia Creeper; The Blue Ridge Parkway; Ashe Central High School, Beaver Creek High School and Northwest Ashe High School; Ashe Memorial Hospital; Ashe County’s Bicentennial; St. Mary’s Episcopal Church; Todd General Store; The Old West Jefferson Hotel, Ashe County Volunteer Fire Departments, Ashe County Cheese, Inc. and the Ashe County Arts Council.
