Wallingford Christmas ornament for the 2013 Holiday Season

The Wallingford Historic Preservation Trust is pleased to announce that this year's Wallingford Christmas ornament features Holy Trinity School, a historic school building in downtown Wallingford.

Located on North Whittlesey Avenue, the school is celebrating is 100th anniversary in 2013. With over 200 students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade, the school is affiliated with Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church, also in Wallingford.

This year's ornament was designed by architect Steven Lazarus and depicts the school as decorated for Christmas. Each year, the students of the school decorate the large windows of the school with white paper images of Christ's birth, which Lazarus was able to work into the ornament design.

The ornaments sell for $9 each, with the proceeds benefiting Holy Trinity School and the Wallingford Preservation Trust. The trust has sold a different Christmas ornament each year since 1991. Many local landmarks have been featured over the years.

Ornaments can be purchased at:
  • Holy Trinity School, 11 North Whittlesey Avenue, during school hours (830am-230pm);
  • Holy Trinity Rectory, 68 North Colony Street, during office hours (9am-4pm);
  • Wallingford Lamp and Shade, 124 Center Street
