Mid-Maine Chamber, Alfond Youth & Community Center to continue festival of trees

Alfond Youth & Community Center and Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce combine efforts to present Festival of Trees this holiday season, continuing a proud tradition begun by the Sukeforth family in 2015. When the family determined it would no longer host the event, AYCC and the Chamber stepped up to preserve this coveted event.

Join us in continuing a fabulous holiday tradition! At the same time, money raised supports families in the community experiencing food insecurity through the services of Alfond Youth & Community Center and funds workforce development services and assistance through the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce, meeting a need existing throughout our region.

Who doesn’t love a beautiful holiday tree? Imagine over 60 trees, each uniquely decked out in holiday cheer. This wonderful family tradition will be held at The Elm, 21 College Ave., Waterville, from November 19-21 and November 26-28. Hours on Fridays and Saturdays will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 21 – 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 28 – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Festival of Trees will provide a magical experience that the whole family can enjoy. Admission for ages 12 and over is just $2 per person; children 12 and under are admitted for free. Purchase and drop your individual tree tickets (just 50 cents each) into the bucket of your favorite tree and you could go home with a beautifully decorated tree complete with all the gift cards and merchandise displayed.

For more information about your business sponsoring a tree as part of the festival, visit https://www.clubaycc.org/festival-of-trees. Businesses entering a tree in the past will be given preference to submit for this year, as space is limited. A substantial number of volunteers will be needed for this event – if you are interested in registering as an individual or a group, visit Volunteer Signup. At this time, masking will be required for all attendees and volunteers.
