Giving Tree Dedication: Thursday, Nov. 14

Dave Eames, a local metal artist and DLSMS board member, created an outdoor, interactive sculpture called “The Giving Tree.” The public sculpture will be re-dedicated 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, in City Hall Plaza, 220 S.E. Green St., in Downtown Lee’s Summit.

Residents and visitors to Downtown Lee’s Summit will be able to interact with “The Giving Tree” by picking up special tags the night of the dedication (no cost for the tags). On the tag, you can write down your wishes, thoughts or hopes. Tags are then placed in a box next to the sculpture and hung by the artist throughout the holiday season. Tags also will be available at participating merchants during the holidays.
