Grimm Families donate Christmas Tree to the City of Wautoma
A 15-foot Fraser Fir, donated by the families of Grimm’s Tree Farm, was planted on Nov. 11 at the World War II Memorial Building in Wautoma to serve as the City of Wautoma’s new Christmas Tree. This particular Fraser is the sister tree to the one that helped to inspire best-selling author, award-winning speaker, humorist and storyteller, Janie Jasin, to write the book “The Littlest Christmas Tree: A Tale of Growing and Becoming”. Jasin, who lives in Minnesota, has had a lake home in the Wautoma area for many years and is a fan of Waushara County. The tree replaced the large evergreen at the corner of corner of State Road 22 and Main Street, that previously served as city’s Christmas Tree. Pictured are: Pearl, Priscilla, Parker, Preston, Pierce, Pauline and Pete Grimm, Jr. along with Wautoma City Administrator/Clerk/Treasurer Tommy Bohler. The new tree will be lit for the first time during a ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 30, following the Wautoma Christmas Parade which begins at 5:30 p.m.
