Festival of Trees

Nov 17, 2022

Let’s kick off the season!  Come join us at the opening Reception of the annual Festival of Trees on Saturday, November 26th - 1:00 to 3:00 - Cushing Community Center - Rte. 6, Marion.  Along with viewing all the creative holiday trees, there will be an artisan sale, music and refreshments. Raffle tickets will be sold for the trees and for donated holiday baskets. Proceeds of the raffles will support the Cushing Community Center Parks Project and raffle winners will be announced on December 8th at 12 noon. The trees will be on display until December 8th.

Please join in! Organizations, businesses, community groups and creative individuals will come together to sponsor and decorate a tree for the festival.  This year three-foot, tree-top, pre-lit trees are being made available to each participant.  Trees are supplied, at no cost, and designers decorate with any style or theme they choose - go ahead and let your imagination go!  Decorations are at the cost of the designer.  If designing a tree is not your thing, you can still participate by joining our basket raffle.  Creative baskets will be gratefully accepted and raffled off as well.  Baskets may be donated up to 3:00 on Tuesday, November 22nd.  Please call Karen at 508-748-3570 if interested in a tree or basket or with any questions you may have.  

The Community Center will be open for tree decorating on the following dates:

Tuesday, November 22nd - 12 noon to 6 p.m.; Friday, November 25th - 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; & Saturday, November 26th - 9 a.m. to 12 noon

Event sponsored by the Friends of Marion Council on Aging to benefit the Community Center Parks Project.
