Christmas Around the World
Sterling woman’s hand-crocheted ornament will be on USA tree at museum
CHICAGO – There's something special at Christmas Around the World and Holidays of Light this year. That's an ornament, made by Caroline Colton Kaletka, 91, of Sterling, which is at the Museum of Science and Industry.
Kaletka, a Rock River Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution member, hand-crocheted the angel ornament. It is displayed on the USA tree, one of 50 in the annual exhibit, which is in its 71st year.
Her membership in DAR stems from her ancestor, Moses Colton of Wilbraham, Mass. This minuteman was right at the start of things on April 19, 1775, in the Battle of Lexington.
