Iconic FDL Business Highlighted On Annual Christmas Ornament

The 2020 collectible Christmas ornament featuring a historic Fond du Lac building or business annually has been released for sale by the Soroptimist Chapter.   This year’s ornament spotlights Edith’s — the historic bridal shop established in 1937 and still operated on Main Street today by family members. 

The beautiful white glass ornament is currently available for purchase at the Fond du Lac City-County Building and at Edith’s Bridal on Main Street.  It will soon be available at a variety of other Fond du Lac businesses, yet to be announced.

“It’s so exciting to showcase Edith’s on our 2020 ornament,” said Donna Christensen, who is on the Soroptimist ornament committee.  “It’s kind of neat that the ornament is for sale in the courthouse right now, especially with there being more foot traffic going in there to vote. It could be a great time to pick it up.  And of course it’s at Edith’s now, too.”

The ornament, which sells for $10, can also be purchased by contacting any Soroptimist member.  For questions on this or past years’ ornaments, call Donna Christensen at 924-7887.

Funds raised from the sale go to the local Soroptimist International Chapter’s mission of helping women and girls.  A different collectible ornament has been produced and sold each year for the past 31 years.
