It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Betty Ehart Senior Center. Christmas trees of all sizes have begun to fill the center, as donations for the Festival of Trees have begun to flow in.
This year will mark the 7th Annual Festival of Trees, an event during which the public can bid on the trees at the center. The event is part of the holiday activities at the BESC, which also includes the Festival of Chocolate on Nov. 19. The Festival of Trees will be from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Nov. 20 at the BESC.
In addition to the festival, an arts and crafts fair will also be held. Children who attend the Festival of Trees will get the opportunity to have their picture taken with Santa Claus, as well. Lunch will be served and there will be live music by Pat Reich and Greg Schneider. The duo will play piano and classical guitar during the event.
BESC Executive Director Pauline Schneider began accepting tree and wreath donations in October and after only a couple of weeks, had received 40 trees that would be put up for auction, however trees donations have flowed in since then, so there should be a wide variety of trees and wreaths to choose from. She said the donations come from various places, including individuals and service groups in town.
