Festival of Trees at the library
Enfield - posted Dec, 02 2013
ENFIELD - The Enfield Public Library, in conjunction with the Enfield Cultural Arts Commission, is presenting a holiday Festival of Trees. The Festival of Trees opening reception will be held on Thursday, Dec. 12, at 6:30 p.m. In addition to the display of trees, the opening reception will feature a Christmas carol sing-a-long with Gary S. Jones. Refreshments will be provided. Individuals, teams, groups, classes, co-workers, families and friends are encouraged to create trees out of unusual materials to enter in the Festival of Trees. Be creative! Think of something you may have at work or at home that you can make into a tree for the display. Community members of all ages are invited to create festive, non-traditional trees to enter in the library’s gallery. All entries will be part of the opening night gallery reception and will be on display until Dec. 27. Artists or would-be tree creators should pick up guidelines at the Enfield Public Library to participate in the art display. Trees should be dropped off by Dec. 6 to be included in the gallery. Guidelines for submission are also available on the library’s website: www.enfieldpubliclibrary.org/festivaloftrees.htm. For more information, call the library at 860-763-7518.
