Belville Elementary Festival of Trees
The Leland area is getting its very own Festival of Trees, and all are invited to donate a decorated tree. Belville Elementary School is hosting the first annual event as a fundraiser, with all proceeds remaining at the school. The public is invited to the school gym on the evening of Friday, Nov. 19 from 5-7 pm. A $1 donation covers entry, hot chocolate and a cookie!
Local businesses, organizations or individuals can participate by donating a decorated tree or sponsoring a tree to be decorated by students and staff with a donation. Trees must be at least five feet tall and can be either real or artificial, though artificial is preferred. Trees can be delivered and decorated Tuesday, Nov. 16 or Wednesday, Nov. 17 from 9 am - 3 pm. Other times can be arranged, but all trees must be decorated by noon on Friday, Nov. 20. Contributors’ names will be displayed on all items as well as in all advertisements and programs.
On the night of the festival, the public can enjoy the trees and bid on a favorite to take home. Purchased trees must be picked up on Saturday, Nov. 20 between 9 am - 12 pm.
