Each Christmas tree is decorated from its starry tiptop to its blanketed base. No two are alike and range from whimsical to traditional! Be sure to cast a ballot for your favorite. And while you’re there, look for the special donation box to help local families in need with your local food bank donation. Trees will be on display in the Conference Center Tuesday-Friday, December 4th – December 14th, from 9am until 4pm each day. Families are encouraged to bring cameras and capture their special holiday photos. And if you want to enter a tree, there’s still plenty of time and it’s free! The trees may stay up throughout the month of December and on into the New Year. Great way to advertise your business or just simply show your Christmas spirit!
