Enchanted Forest Tree Decorating

The Enchanted Forest is a festive fundraiser for the local charity Marillac, which provides mental health care for troubled children and families, now in it's 20th year. Decorated trees and wreaths donated to Marillac will be on display at the Convention Center from November 8-11, 2012 and free to view by the public. The decorations are also available for purchase through a silent auction.

    I have some good news for those on the waiting list, after speaking with the volunteer coordinator we are increasing the number from 8 to 16. Please check your schedule and make sure you will be able to attend. We've also been asked to help set up and decorate a tree with ornaments made by the children at Marillac. Anyone with a special talent for primping and making things look expensive let me know so we can put you on this project. More details will be sent as the event gets closer. Thanks for the great response to this event.
