This is my first year participating in Mid Columbia Health Foundation’s Festival of Trees in The Dalles, OR, and I have to say it has been a great time so far! Our Relay For Life The Dalles Area committee agreed to do a spur-of-the-moment tree with a Luminaria theme, and for our first committee tree since I’ve been in RFL, I am VERY proud of how it turned out. From the team spirit, to the handmade and hand decorated ornaments, it is a tree built as a testament to what a community or group of people can do when they put their collective minds and hearts toward one goal. It is our Light of Luminaria tree, in memory of those lost to cancer, in honor of all survivors, and in support of those newly diagnosed or going through treatment.
Please check out the Festival of Trees 2014 Facebook page at 2014 Festival of Trees, and attend the event weekend at The Dalles Civic Center. This Friday December 5th, is the live & silent auction event starting at 6:00 p.m. Then on Saturday, bring the family for the Community Open House, with free admission, starting at 9:00 a.m.
