CALEDONIA—Next time you walk by the Caledonia Legion or past the Spratt Park located at 55 Argyle Street North, you will find beautifully decorated Christmas trees. Both displays are referred to as memorial trees and each exhibit has its own story, each of them beginning with the loss of a child. 

The memorial trees at the Caledonia Legion are an annual tradition that began at the park located next to the Oasis. This collection is organized by Kimberly Pinczel, a former Caledonia citizen who held many key community leadership roles when she lived in town.
