The annual Festival of Trees will be Nov. 12-19.
The event, sponsored in the past by Hodgenville Main Street, has been adopted by the Hodgenville Woman’s Club.
Individuals, organizations and businesses are invited to enter a decorated tree, wreath, garland or other holiday decoration to be placed for silent auction. Viewing and bidding will take place in the Lincoln Museum Community Room and will be open to the public. Funds raised benefit local projects or charities.
A “People’s Choice,” based on votes will receive $25.
• Complete an entry form with starting bid by Nov. 8. Forms are available by contacting Theresa Howard at 358-3401, Jessica Davis at 358-3411 or Iris LaRue at 358-3163.
• Pay entry fee of $10 per tree or $5 per wreath or garland.
• Provide a fully decorated tree, wreath, garland or similar decoration. Only artificial trees and greenery are accepted. The use of live trimmings is discouraged. Trees may be up to 10-feet tall, though the table-top, slim-line and corner trees have become popular favorites. Tree skirts are not required; however, if you put a skirt on the tree, it will be assumed as part of the total sale.
• Provide an 8-foot extension cord. Put your name on it for return.
• Set up the entry in the Community Room during the following times: 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 12; 1-4 p.m. Nov. 13; and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 14.
The Festival will be open to the public 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Nov. 16-18 and noon-7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19.
All trees and entries that do not sell must be removed from site by noon, Wednesday, Nov. 23.
