Festival of Trees is a new innovative for the Chamber, held in conjunction with the small business Christmas party. “The response, for the first year, was awesome and overwhelming,” said one of the many volunteer organizers, Cathy Wiltse.
She extended her appreciation to board members, Diane Ahn, Mylene English, Hilary Morris and a long list of businesses.
President of the Chamber of Commerce Rene Fournier extended his gratitude to all of the sponsors and the board to host such a gala event.
Plans are already underway for the second annual event next year.
