Festival of Trees Set for Dec. 9


The Eastport Arts Center’s 8th Annual Festival of Trees, a silent auction of lovingly decorated table-top trees which benefit the center’s programming, will take place on Saturday, December 9 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Attendees will enjoy wandering through the magical forest of sparkling trees while nibbling festive treats passed by young volunteers and listening to live music played by members of the arts center community. This is when the silent bids are filled in by those dreaming of one of these delightful trees in their home. Some of the tantalizing titles we’ve received thus far are: Mutts and Mugs, Starry, Starry Nights, The Elfkin Tree, Gardens Dreaming, Waving Around the World, Souvenirs de la France, Tree of Kisses, Ring out the Old, Ring in the New, Oceans Away, Mouser & Muff, The Way It Grows in Eastport, The Midas Touch, Calling All Angels, The Soup Tree and Christmas By The Sea.

New decorators participating this year are Eastport Muncipal Airport, Eat Local Eastport Co-op, Quoddy Bay Lobster, Dastardly Dick's, Dominic Noe, Michaelynn Cecire, TWIG, Patricia Gardiner and the Girl Scouts. Returning to our delight are Catherine Lee, Peavey Memorial Library, ArtsBloom, French Club, Robin Farrin, Kendall Farm Cottages, Kathy Lewis, Cathy Moroz and Jeanne Katkavich, David Oja, the Little Water Street Gang, the French Club, Drew Proctor and Alberta Hunter.

This holiday highlight auction keeps the lights burning with programming to brighten the long Eastport winter. The Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street and is handicapped-accessible.
