Festival of Trees sponsor deadline tomorrow

The 2012 Festival of Trees deadline for sponsorship is tomorrow, Friday, Nov. 16.

To secure a spot to sponsor a tree for the nonprofit of your choice, stop by the community center and pick up an application.

This event is a wonderful opportunity for you to help raise money for the nonprofits in Archuleta County, as well as a great time to get a beautiful tree for a holiday season that is fast approaching.

The Festival of Trees event will be held Friday, Nov. 30, from 6:30-9 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now for $12 at the Boulder Cafe and the Ross Aragon Community Center. Tickets at the door will be $15.

The center is currently looking for donations: Christmas-themed silent auction items and hors d’oeuvres for the event, as well as for volunteers.

Come by the community center, or call for more information at 264-4152.

Holiday closure

The Ross Aragon Community Center will be closed Nov. 22-23. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
