O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging!
At least that’s the motto this week as the Zonta Club of Spearfish prepares for the annual Festival of Trees.
Every year dozens of trees are decorated and displayed at the Spearfish City Park Pavilion and later auctioned off. There are some traditionally decorated trees, some themed trees, some gift certificate trees and many holiday wreaths. Hundreds of community members pass in and out of the pavilion from Thursday to Saturday to view the trees and other displays. There are several events that take place throughout the festival including school tours, senior tea, a music concert, a social, an auction, a dance and Saturday with Santa.
The Festival of Trees is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Zonta Club of Spearfish. The money raised goes right back into the community to support the advancement of women and children. So make sure you add this event to your holiday calendar. For a detailed list of events and times visit the Zonta website.
