See the 2018 Story on Video

We were so delighted to have Stephen Parr from Cogeco news visit us this past week and video the Fantasy of Trees display.  We thank Janet Oakes of the Grimsby Museum for her wonderful commentary.  And we captured Bob and Lois Gowans on video as well.  Bob is the originator of this annual fundraiser – he started it 19 years ago.  Congratulations to the Rotary Club of Grimsby for this great community event.

Is there a Halloween Christmas Tree?

It is almost Halloween!  Today we are enjoying the “hallowed” Christmas tree from our Fantasy of Trees 2016 – the very special and much loved Harry Potter Tree with decorations created by Jill Linkert with help from Judy Meldrum!

There will be a little Harry Potter coming to this year’s Fantasy!  Not a tree!  What could it be?

We are thrilled to receive a special item for the Silent Auction this year.  We would like to thank VerticalScope for donating an upright stationary exercise bike to the Fantasy of Trees.  This is a fantastic bike and would make a great gift or motivator for your New Years resolutions!  Take a look at the Sole B94 review.  That’s an A rating in the review picture below.
