Festival of Trees

Festival of Trees takes place the weekend before Thanksgiving. The CCAC Guild Inc will have a tree in our booth area all decorated.

Nadine Miller and Zoe Crane are conducting crafting workshops at the senior center twice a month where Seniors can come in a make ornaments. The seniors are happy to be able to craft and we are getting ornaments for our tree.

Caregivers and Hospice conducts this event and everything we put on the trees is a donation to them. Our decorated trees will be auctioned off in their silent auction - they keep the money, the top bidder gets the tree and all decorations.
