Festival Of Trees

From hillbillies to divas, Christmas got creative at this year's Festival of Trees.

Thirty eight 32 inch trees are on display at Good Shepherd Medical Center today and tomorrow. Hospital staff and volunteers decorate the trees in the theme of their choice. All of the trees are up for auction with profits benefiting the Auxiliary group.

Volunteer Coordinator Pat Watson says the decorations just seem to get better and better each year. "They just have their own ideas and thoughts about this and whatever inspires them, they transmit it to the tree," says Pat.

The silent auction will continue until 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon. This is the 4th year for the Festival of Trees event.
