FESTIVAL of TREES is now history!
Our 16th annual Festival of Trees Gala and Silent Auction was held on Friday, December 13th, 2019. A variety of full-sized Christmas trees, wreaths, centerpieces and table-top trees were auctioned off along with a selection of Santa Pack items.
Funds from this year's event will go toward installation of a nine-month-long exhibit in 2020 called "Her-Story; the Women's Suffrage Movement in Oregon and What It Means Today" and a companion volume of essays and stories written by Oregonian women of today. This exhibit will mark the 100th Anniversary of the 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment.
Our Festival of Trees Committee ~ Diane Colcord, Peggy Landau, Jennifer Thiele, Cindy Gardner, Elki Powers, Ruby Fry-Matson, Lorri Drollinger and Carla Albright ~ have been working hard on this year's event and we thank them for their time and efforts.
Our wine was generously donated by the Blue Heron French Cheese Company, Wetzel Estates and Tillamook Bowling Lanes with beer from Pelican Brewing. Catering was from the Pacific Restaurant in downtown Tillamook.
