One stop shop for a holiday tree

Auction > Benefits Los Alamos youth, senior programs

By Bernadette Lauritzen

If you want to be ready for the holidays, but just don’t have the time or patience to get things done, then there is one event that can save you time, money and do a good deed for many.
The event is the Festival of Trees, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 23 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
The annual event is one stop shopping for trees, wreaths, quilts, ornaments, baked goods and of course, shopping.
The idea behind the event is the largest silent auction this town has ever seen used to benefit senior and youth programs in and around Los Alamos.
The Betty Ehart Senior Center is filling to the brim with holiday trees, in all sizes shapes and colors to fit any décor.
“Toys in the Attic,” by Annie Bard, manager of the White Rock Senior Center includes wooden ornaments donated by Romayne Betts and some from Annie’s collection,” said Pauline Powell Schneider, LARSO Director. “There is also a pair of antique wooden shoes at the base of the tree. The tree sprouts out of a reproduction antique trunk.”
There are all varieties of themes for the year including sports and toy themes. “There’s also a very charming, ‘Santa’s Clothesline,’ tree donated by the RSVP quilters,” Powell Schneider said.
