We’ve got great ideas – do you have some too?

Thank you to our executive committee, headed by chair Roger Bradley for a great planning meeting last week. With all of the members’ great ideals it will make the 18th annual Fantasy of Trees one of the best events ever.  

Do you have a great idea? You can reach us at info@fantasyoftrees.ca – we’d love to hear from you.

Thanks to everyone who donated, supported, and came out to the Fantasy of Trees 2016!  Approximately $15,000 was raised for local charities.

Our People’s Choice Award was Jill Linkert & Judy Meldrum’s superb and glorious tree – The Magical World of Harry Potter.  The tree was sponsored by Tarbutt Construction.  Congratulations!

First 600 Visitors get a coffee coupon from Station 1 Coffee House

We are so very appreciative of Station 1 Coffee House for their very generous donation of coffee coupons for our first 600 visitors to the Fantasy of Trees.  

Station 1 is an important part of our community – with its beautiful decor, its warm surroundings and great food, and of course, fabulous coffee.  Station 1 has some Christmas community events coming up so take a look at their website.  Better yet, pop in to say hello to them and thank them for their great community spirit and support.

Our Fantasy Forest is Complete

Our Fantasy Forest is complete – we have 40 sponsored trees.  And there will be wreaths on the walls too!  This is going to be a great display inside and outside.  There are special outdoor lights on the tree and the tree lighting will be on Saturday November 26 at 6:00pm.  The outdoor display will include a reindeer family this year.  They are one of the special items in the silent auction.  You might want to take them home and give them a special place in your Christmas display.
