Still taking Festival of Trees donation applications

We are still taking applications for families and seniors in need of a Christmas tree, which will be donated following our Festival of Trees auction.

Applications can be filled out at the Ross Aragon Community Center office, 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, until Nov. 30.

There is a limit on the number of trees donated. Please fill out your application as soon as possible, and trees will be donated on a first-come, first-served basis.

We hope you are able to join us for the silent and live auctions on Dec. 4. You can purchase tickets at the community center and at the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center. Tickets are $10.

This wonderful evening begins at 6 p.m. Peter Morey will entertain us with his beautiful holiday piano renditions. There will also be catered hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.

Come and bid on one or two trees to benefit your favorite local, non-profit organization.

This event will be held Saturday, Dec. 5, at the Ross Aragon Community Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; show time is 7 p.m.
