Newnan releases 2013 Christmas ornament

Main Street Newnan has received its shipment of the 2013 Christmas ornament, which will be available for purchase in coming days at participating downtown locations.

The 2013 ornament features the old Newnan Hospital.

“The Newnan Hospital redevelopment project is one of the most fascinating examples of adaptive reuse that our city has ever undergone, and this year’s Christmas ornament celebrates our accomplishment,” says Courtney Collins, Main Street manager.

“Many residents of Newnan were born at this hospital, and will have children and grandchildren begin college at the same location,” she said. “As we welcome in the University of West Georgia’s Newnan Campus to our downtown, we would like to commemorate the legacy of the old Newnan Hospital. For years to come, residents of Newnan will look back on this ornament and remember that in 2013 our community preserved the past and pushed for a better tomorrow.”

This year’s ornament is especially significant, as it celebrates a beloved landmark that has served our community for decades, and will continue to do for several more to come, Collins said.

“The 2013 Christmas ornament is a testament to the year that the old Newnan Hospital found a new community use,” she said. The 2013 ornament will be available in several downtown locations, including Bell’s Handcrafts, Ace Beer Growlers, Squiggly Doodles, Grannie Fannies, Vinyl Chatter, Stairway Antiques, R. DuBose Jewelers, Blue Moon Boutique, The Design House, C.S. Toggery, Encore Décor, Gillyweed, The Corner Arts Gallery, Morgan Jewelers, and the Business Development/Main Street Office.

For collectors, previous years’ ornaments are also available at the Business Development/Main Street Office on First Avenue.

Ornaments are individually priced at $12 each. Accepted forms of payment include cash, check, and money order.

Call Main Street Newnan at 770-253-8283 for additional information.
