Winter Wonderland 2nd Annual Festival of Trees
The Josephine Foundation 2nd Annual “Winter Wonderland” St. Mary’s Festival of the Trees was held in December. The major attraction to the festival was a brilliant display of beautifully decorated Christmas trees. Many of the trees were sponsored by families, organizations and local businesses with each tree’s decoration uniquely themed based on the sponsor’s favorite Christmas Carol.
The festival was opened to the public on December 1st and 2nd where guests had the opportunity to meet/greet and take pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus in front of their cherished fireplace. Guests also enjoyed live entertainment from the students of the SMHS Performing Arts Department and from various surrounding area choirs and popular performers.
The event also offered for purchase, beautifully decorated hand-made wreaths, Christmas crafts and delicious holiday desserts from the Sweet Shoppe. The guests also participated in a special fun-filled holiday scavenger hunt. This event was once again a tremendous success enjoyed by all who attended! It was truly a magical and beautiful way to celebrate the Christmas season. All proceeds raised benefitted the St. Mary’s High School Performing Arts Scholarship Fund.
