Calling All Christmas Trees!
16th Annual Festival of Trees
by St. Johnís Lutheran Hospital
November 18, 2010

Business owners, local merchants, organizations, individuals, and families are encouraged to promote their cause this holiday season by displaying a decorated tree at the St. Johnís Lutheran Hospital Foundationís 16th Annual Festival of Trees at the Libby Memorial Center on Friday, December 10, and Saturday, Dec. 11. There is no cost to display a tree.

"This two-day event has become a holiday tradition in our community, and we hope more folks will join in the fun. Most of the community walks through the doors of the Memorial Center at some point over that weekend, so itís a great way to advertise and bring awareness to your organization," commented KC Hoyer, Foundation Director at St. Johnís. "But get your entry form in early because the number of trees that can be displayed is limited."

The Festivalís Community night, on Friday, December 10th is sure to be fun for the whole family. "We are once again having a childrenís Santa Wonderland and are thrilled that this has become a community tradition," added Hoyer. "Itís great that we can provide a safe and warm environment for parents to bring their children to have their holiday wishes granted in a magical, memorable way. As always, we have arranged for a professional photographer to be on hand to capture the memories."

The Community night will also include the SJH Auxiliaryís Annual Craft Sale. "This year we have enlisted the help of the Kiwanis, Donís Depot, Lincoln County Libraries, and local youth groups to help with the childrenís activities including ornament making and face painting. We are expecting record crowds and are thrilled that these folks are willing to help out," added Hoyer.

If you would like to enter a tree for the Festival of Trees or get more information on the event, call KC Hoyer at 406-293-0106.
