Get ready! An extravaganza of creatively decorated trees is coming to the County.  Local businesses will be decorating trees for a weekend event planned to raise money for an area nonprofit dental clinic which serves the oral health needs of children from all over the County.

Members of the Presque Isle Knights of Columbus and the St Apollonia Dental Clinic Board of Directors have come together to organize the County’s First Annual Festival of Trees. With the generosity of many businesses and organizations, the group is introducing this fundraiser to Aroostook County after similar successful events in Lewiston and Bangor.

The event features a winter wonderland of donated trees, fully decorated with gift items included, to be raffled off at the close of the event.  Businesses, organizations and individuals are registering to sponsor a tree. Currently trees with themes include a Frozen Birthday Party tree complete with decorations to host a party for 20 kids, as well as a tree full of gifts for infants.

The trees will be set up at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Chapman Street in Presque Isle.

            Saturday, December 6th 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
