---- — Thanks from Committee

This year’s 15th Anniversary of the Festival of Trees was nothing short of magical. Exeter’s Town Hall was miraculously transformed into a winter wonderland of fifty-two beautiful evergreen trees for thousands to enjoy. None of this would have happened without the participation of our thirty dedicated committee members, the twenty generous Underwriters, the fifty-two creative decorators, the many cheerful high school volunteers, the families and friends who turned on their ovens to bake cookies, the volunteers who delivered the trees, the many businesses that gave donations and the many visitors to the event who participated in the silent auction. A special “thank you” goes out to Dan Jackson of Arjay’s Ace Hardware for donating all of the trees this year and to Jack Post Trees Stands Inc. for all of the tree stands (sold at Arjay’s Ace Hardware).

The Festival of Trees is a community event that has raised over $275,000 for the Chamber (of Commerce) Children’s Fund over the past 15 years. Proceeds are used to provide new warm winter clothing and blankets for local children in need. We encourage people to view our FaceBook Page “The Festival of Trees – Exeter, NH” to get a sense of the joy and beauty this event has been bringing to our community over the past 15 years.

With the deepest of gratitude to everyone involved,

Jan Russell and Bonnie Galinski

Festival of Trees Co-Chairs
