The East Islip High School Orchestra will hold their annual Christmas wreath sale on December 2. In conjunction with a commercial wreath wholesaler, the orchestra program will offer fresh, double-faced balsam pine wreaths delivered to home or office at no extra cost. As in the past, all proceeds from the sale will help fund the orchestra’s Music Scholarship Fund and annual Spring Music Competition.

The wreaths are hand-woven onto 16-inch diameter rings, yielding a 24-inch finished wreath. Double-faced wreaths are versatile because they may be hung on a door, window, wall or arch. A limited number of 3-inch wreaths are also available, as well as 2-inch x 3-inch grave blankets. All wreaths are decorated with a gold-lined red velvet bow; red, green and gold glass ball clusters (decorative picks on the grave blankets); and gold-tipped Jersey pine cones.

To purchase a wreath, pick up an order form at the high school’s orchestra room, ask an orchestra student for an order form or simply call the music office at 631-224-2145. Checks should be made out to "East Islip Schools.” All wreaths must be paid for in advance, but purchases are covered by a 100% money-back guarantee. Order will be taken up until the day of the wreath sale.

“Our music students raise the entire cost of our spring trip each year,” said East Islip High School Orchestra Directors Kelly A. Gelfer and Susan W. Rydzeski. “We thank the community for their support and patronage, and we are sure everyone will enjoy these beautiful wreaths.”
