It was perfect weather Friday evening for the Festival of Trees, an annual benefit for the Disabled Athletes with Grundy Support, held at the Rock Barn. The parade featured the Christmas Queen and King, Earlene VanHoozer and Charles Gash, pictured above, while the Rock Barn activities included an auction of 25 decorated trees, 21 wreaths, 14 baskets and 14 other items for a total of 74 items. In addition, other activities were held, including gingerbread house-building, carriage rides and musical entertainment by such local musicians as Maci Henson and Kennedy Norton. The event raised around $7,500 for the DAWGS.
