SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Please join Springfield Garden Club members in celebrating the 25th annual Festival of Trees at the Great Hall on 100 River Street. The holiday kickoff event will be held Friday, Nov. 17 from 6-8 p.m., and the theme this year is “Silver Bells.”
There will be fresh Christmas wreaths for sale as well as floral arrangements for your Thanksgiving table, holiday centerpieces, and much more. Twenty baskets filled with products donated by local businesses will be raffled off in addition to a broad array of wonderful silent auction items also donated by local civic-minded businesses. A ticket includes your choice of wine, microbrews, apple cider, and hors d’oeuvres.
All proceeds go directly back to support town beautification efforts, scholarships, and other community programs. Entertainment will be provided again this year by Gerry Grimo’s band, the renowned East Bay Jazz Ensemble. Tickets will be available at the door.
