Festival of Trees 2015 - Glistening Forest!
A Holiday Wonderland supporting the children’s scholarship programs of the Creative Arts Guild and Friendship House
Friendship House and the Creative Arts Guild are pleased to announce the opening of our 3rd Annual Festival of Trees. This premier holiday event will offer an exhibit and silent auction of over 50 wonderfully decorated trees, wreaths, garlands and centerpieces to support need-based scholarships for children enrolled at the Friendship House and the Creative Arts Guild.
This wonderland forest of holiday trees is arrayed throughout the large Jonas Performance Hall at the Creative Arts Guild, 520 W. Waugh Street in Dalton. Each tree is accompanied by a bidding form on which interested buyers may make an entry of a bid amount.
The exhibit of these festive seasonal adornments and the silent auction for bidding on them will be open daily during regular Guild hours from Friday November 6 through Sunday December 6; on Mondays through Thursdays 10am-6pm; Fridays 10am-4pm; Saturdays and Sundays - 11am-3pm (closed Thanksgiving weekend). The silent auction bidding closes at 3pm on Sunday, December 6, and the trees will go home with their new owners (highest bidders) that evening!
We are very grateful to our “Angel” sponsors: Engineered Floors and Dr. Reginald Sherrill; we also want to express our thanks to the many other volunteers who donated and/or decorated these awesome trees and wreaths and who helped plan, coordinate and set up the “wonderland”.

an exciting addition to the Festival of Trees this year:
Breakfast with Santa, Dec 5th
Cross Plains Community Partner (CPCP) hosts Breakfast with Santa at the Creative Arts Guild! CPCP's annual Breakfast with Santa is a great way to get into the holiday spirit. This year, CPCP is partnering with Friendship House and the Creative Arts Guild to bring Breakfast with Santa into the Guild’s great venue on Waugh Street amidst the beautiful Festival of Trees. (See associated article and pictures of the Festival of Trees now in its second week of display).
For the 3rd year in a row, this fun, family-oriented event includes a hot breakfast (waffles and toppings, bacon or sausage, and fruit), simple crafts for kids while they wait to see Santa, and a picture with the Jolly Elf, himself.
Breakfast with Santa will be on December 5th from 8:00am to 11:00am; to purchase tickets in advance, please call (706) 278-8143. The proceeds from Breakfast with Santa tickets helps support critical services of CPCP which in turn enhance the quality of life for many adults in our community.
