Omaha Czech Cultural Club Decorates an "Upside-Down" Christmas Tree in Wilber
An "upside-down" Christmas tree was on display December 3 - 4, 2011 as part of Wilber's Hometown Holiday Celebration - Celebrating 50 Years of Czech Heritage.
Julia Ourecky, 2011 Omaha Czech Cultural Club Princess, decorated the tree with traditional Czech ornaments such as angels, apples, walnuts, perniky (gingerbread cookies) and bells. Her father, Steve Ourecky, engineered the tree display.
