Why Did a Grinch Steal a Christmas Tree in Ferndale and, More Importantly, Can You Help Get It Back?
All the thief left was the Christmas tree stand and an extension cord.
“We’re most upset about the ornaments,” said Paul Beatie, owner of Ferndale Music Company. They were handmade by the two and three year olds at Ferndale’s Children’s Center. One special ornament was decorated with the handprint of his son.
Of course as we know from the Dr. Seuss story, this Grinch can’t stop Christmas from coming but he has dented its luster for the small ones whose ornaments decorated the tree and their families.
May the Grinch or someone who has information about the stolen tree have their heart grow three sizes today. At least return the ornaments to their small owners.
