Decorated edibles adorn cedar tree at Coastal Branch Library

As one of the Friends of the Library activities, children gathered to decorate a cedar tree in front of the Coastal Branch Library on Dec. 6. Pinecones were coated with peanut butter and seed, along with stars made from pipe cleaners strung with Cheerios. The children then hung with care as a special treat for the birds.

Brian Mitchell, Kianna and Indica Riggins, Maddox Rhea, Michael Fontaine of Santa Rosa Beach, and Nick Hundley of Seagrove made the edible decorations.
