Talented Elves

It happened again!  It must have been Santa’s elves who visited the Dairy Queen on Central Avenue in Augusta, Georgia.  For close to twenty years, the elves have left their handiwork on the Dairy Queen windows during this special time of year.  The handiwork?  It’s a little Christmas artwork.

We confess… we actually know the elves.  They are our awesome 4th grade students of St. Mary on the Hill Catholic School, and they spent part of a morning creating their masterpieces.  Some are individual paintings; others are a team effort.  Because of the number of 4th grade students, the homerooms went to Dairy Queen in two shifts to complete their art project.

Yes, the students have fun painting the windows, but it is not as easy as you think.  They need to paint their drawing in reverse so the correct side is visible from the outside of the building.  The students first sketch their idea and then plan how to paint it in reverse.  This year’s creations include a Nativity scene, Christmas trees, presents, a snow globe, Rudolph, Snoopy, and even a Christmas Yoda.


When you are out and about this Christmas season please stop by and enjoy a double-dipper treat at the Dairy Queen on Central Avenue – yummy food and a Christmas wonderland! 


St. Mary on the Hill Catholic School extends its appreciation to Dairy Queen for so graciously continuing this longstanding and special tradition in the Augusta community.
