The Festival of
Trees 2016 is here. The trees are up in Thomas Centennial Park, the lights
are on, and they are ready to be sponsored and decorated.
There are thirty
Douglas Fir trees, each with lights and an information box. Each tree is
available to be sponsored and decorated by an organization or family in the
community. The sponsorship fee is $150.
Each tree will have
a unique clue on the inside of the lid to the information box in front of
the tree. There will be a list of thirty questions available, with the
common theme being the 200th anniversary of the State of Indiana. Each
person who correctly answers all the questions will receive a certificate
for a Christmas ornament from the Westchester Township History Museum.
