The Packet (Clarenville) - - Front page - BY MARK SQUIBB [email protected]­acket.ca

It’s Christ­mas time at the Dr. G.B. Cross Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal, and that means it’s time for the an­nual de­part­men­tal Christ­mas tree com­pe­ti­tion.

Staff say it’s a fun way to spread some fes­tive Christ­mas cheer and put smiles on pa­tients faces, while grow­ing as a team.

As in year’s past, there are some di­verse trees on dis­play, in­clud­ing health records pet tree, dec­o­rated with pho­tos of fam­ily pets, an­i­mal dec­o­ra­tions, toys, and cans of cat food; ob­stet­rics snow­man tree, com­plete with bulbs marked with the weight of new­borns; ra­di­ol­ogy’s Scrab­ble tree, and house­keep­ing’s homey dis­play fea­tur­ing Santa and some chil­dren re­lax­ing by the fire — un­for­tu­nately, one of the stock­ings hung with care on the chim­ney is filled with coal.

Res­i­dents of Dr. Al­bert O’Ma­hony Me­mo­rial Manor dec­o­rate a spe­cial tree with or­na­ments of their own.

Look to for more pho­tos and a list of win­ners.
