Members of the Maine Educational Association-Retired were asked to decorate the tree representing Maine in the Pathway of Peace in Washington, D.C. this year.

The pathway is made up of 56 smaller cut evergreens, representing the 50 states, plus the District of Columbia and unincorporated territories of the United States, arranged in a large oval around the national Christmas tree each December. Walkways are laid in front of the trees, forming the Pathway of Peace.

For the Knox County affiliate of MEA-R, Nancy Eugley, Kate Jackson and Beth Chamberlin decorated a large, globe-shaped ornament, filling it with sand, sea glass, a miniature lobster trap and buoy.
