The Museum is pleased to announce the 2014 selections from the Festival of Trees participants: the People’s Choice Award goes to Broadstreet Properties & Seymour Pacific, for their “The 12 days of Christmas” tree which depicts the traditional English Christmas Carol with a distinctly modern look.  

The Most Unique tree award went to Marine Harvest for the fish and waterfront themed tree they sponsored that was decorated by Cynde Ashdown, Most Traditional to the turn of the 19th century period tree sponsored by the Thulin Family and Best of Festival to the Samson & Berry Families for the tree they sponsored and so delightfully decorated.

In addition to the more than twenty Christmas trees, there were antique toys, finely handcraft wooden models and a model train featured in the Museum’s Changing Gallery for the month of December. 

Proceeds from the Festival, which are raised through tree sponsorship, will help support the Museum’s public and school programs as well as temporary exhibits.  The Museum looks forward to hosting this event in 2015, so mark your calendars to include a visit to the Festival of Trees this coming December.
