Trees of Giving

From November 24-December 15  there is a diverse exhibit of trees decorated for the Christmas season.  There is such a variety as each has been decorated by various Community Groups.  I encourage you to drop into the Heritage & Cultural Centre to see them and vote on your favourite tree.  One dollar is one vote.  This year all proceeds go directly to the King For Refugees.
