A large metal tree created to celebrate Vernon’s centennial in 1992 has been slicing up patrons at the local museum.
A letter to city council from the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives board of directors asks for tree to be removed from the foyer.
It is adorned with metal leaves that are engraved with the names of citizens who donated to the museum.
According to the letter: “The tree has proved to be a hazard for both visitors and staff. A tourist and a cadet have both been cut by the leaves and the cleaning staff cannot clean around the tree because of the possibility of being injured.”
City council has decided not to deal with the matter, instead sending it to the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee to consider.
