A successful Festival of Trees

We would like to thank everyone for participating in our fifth annual Festival of Trees auction.

I’m sure all the organizations would agree with us. It was a grand night of beautiful trees, wonderful food catered by Alley House, and great auction action.

We hope you will join us next year for the best trees in town. And if you would like to participate next year, give the center a call at 264-4152.
