This coming weekend, Saturday, November 18 th , the annual cutting and delivery of the Baker City Christmas Tree will take place.

Congratulations to Wanda Groshens and her family for having their tree chosen as the 2017 Community Christmas Tree.

The Community Christmas Tree is chosen from nominations that were submitted to the Community Development Department. Those nominations were forwarded on to the selection committee at OTECC. The selection committee takes into account safety, location and size of the tree.

A big thank you goes out to everyone that nominated trees this year!

The Community Christmas Tree has become a centerpiece for the holiday season in Baker City and it takes a lot of coordination to make it happen. A special thank you to the following volunteers and partners who will be donating their time and equipment: Oregon Trail Electric Cooperative, Chuck Carey, Superior Towing, Baker City Police Department and Public Works.
