The Springfield Garden Club has begun planning for their 17th Annual Festival of Trees at The Fullerton Inn in Chester on Friday November 20 from 6 to 8 p.m.
A favorite tree again will be, with the delicate hand-cut Scherenschnitt designs, lovingly created by the garden club members.
This annual event helps to kick off the local holiday season.
This major fundraiser helps the club to purchase the flowers for the many civic beautification plantings in the area as well as provide funding for their Garden Therapy programs in the Adult Care Services and the Meals on Wheels floral arrangements sent to clients.
It also helps to provide the SGC scholarships given to local college students studying in the field of horticulture, forestry or environmental sciences.
