KEESEVILLE - December 2, 3-4 will be very special at one location in Keeseville as the Good Shepherd Church is hosting a Festival of Trees. This celebration of the opening of Christmas is the idea of Pastor and Mrs Richard Reese. The idea is to have as many Keeseville businesses and agencies sponsor and decorate a tree which will be at the church at 124 Hill Street. There will be many different themes offered such as a "kids tree," a "music tree," and a "food tree." One other special highlight of the festival is a railroad room, in which a G scale train layout is on display. It is hoped to have 30 to 35 different trees decorated and on display.
In addition to the trees, a special time of a musical offering will be presented by seven area student violinists. They will be performing traditional and holiday pieces.
Refreshments will be served at all open house times. The public is cordially invited to this and is free of charge. Anyone who wishes can bring a donation of a canned good item for the local food shelf.
Times for this are: Friday, Dec. 3 from 6:30 - 8 pm.; Saturday, Dec. 4 from 1- 3 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 5 from 2- 4 p.m.
