19th Annual Festival of Trees

2014-06-23 05:44:45 support919

This year is the 19th annual Family Support Network of Eastern NC’s Festival of Trees. Each year, in December, we have close to 100 trees on display at the Greenville Convention Center, Greenville North Carolina. The Sponsors names are displayed next to the tree and the artificial trees re sponsored by local businesses, agencies and individuals to advertise their business, or in honor/memory of an individual or group. Trees are sponsored at different categories and decorated accordingly. Some trees are decorated by the business and they bring staff and have a party while decorating. Other trees are decorated by school groups, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, church groups, ECU and PCC students, fraternities and sororities. Other trees are decorated by the individual sponsor.

19th Annual FSN FoT

Each year the themes vary and our decorators are very creative in the theme that is carried out from the top of the tree to the tree skirt. If you are interested in sponsoring a tree or decorating a tree please contact us and we will be glad to get you involved. brendafamilysupport@gmail.com

The trees are on display until just before Christmas and open during the normal working hours of the Greenville Convention Center. Admission is free.
