Holiday Tree Contest Spreads Good Cheer

Omnitrans Coach Operator Lorina Le’Roy and her “Vintage Kitchen” Christmas tree.

Coach Operator Lorina Le-Roy and Dispatcher Mark Donelly can always be relied on to do our holiday decorating at the East Valley office. This year, due to their busy schedules, Lorina thought maybe they they could try something a little different that would both save them time and get their co-workers caught up in the holiday spirit.

Lorina asked Operations Director Diane Caldera for permission to bring in several artificial trees and hold a tree decorating contest.  Diane thought it was a marvelous idea, and so our first annual holiday tree contest was born.

Everyone got into the spirit of the event, and there was quite of bit of excitement and friendly rivalry as the trees took shape. Each one was as as interesting and unique as the individuals who created them. We thought you might enjoy a little sneak peek behind the scenes for a look at these wonderful entries and some of the people who created them.

Our first place winner was Coach Operator Debbbie Molloy with her tree “Winter of Freedom.” It’s a heartfelt tribute to her son who is currently stationed in Texas, as well as to all the men and women who serve in our nation’s military. Her tree was decked in red, white and blue and  featured a marine ornament, a sailor nutcracker, flags and Santa.

Coach Operator Debbie Molloy won first place for her holiday tree, “Winter of Freedom.”

Second place went to Coach Operators Pamela Valigura and Maria Granado. They chose a vintage tree theme that incorporated lovely Victorian ornaments and an angel who kept a benevolent eye on our bus yard.

Coming in at third place was husband and wife Coach Operators Mike and Tina Hinkle with their “Special Ops Tree.” Classic green army soldiers and helicopters poised among the branches and a teddy bear in fatigues was deployed from the ceiling above.

From all of us at Omnitrans, thank you for allowing us to serve you. We wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season and a safe and prosperous New Year.
