Festival of Trees, 2013
The Festival of Trees was brilliant! With over 70 trees donated and a fabulous silent auction, we raised over $20,000 for teacher grants in Reading Schools!
Thank you all for your support!
A special thank you to Lowe’s for donating the REF tree this year, and to Sartell Electric for lighting, Bertucci’s for the Pizza, Terry Weir for music, and the Reading Rotary Club for the cotton candy, not to mention all of our beloved Silent Auction & Tree donors (see listing below)…
… And to Creative Arts for face painting, plus KidSing, Middle School Select Chorus, RMHS Select Chorus, Taylor Hilliard, and the Wood End and Birch Meadow Ukeleles (funded by a REF grant) for all the wonderful music!
