Holiday decorators needed now for Carnegie Festival of Trees


The Carnegie Library Museum is making an immediate appeal for entries in the 2016 Festival of Trees.

Who: Businesses, churches, organizations/clubs, and individuals—truly one and all.

What: Free exposure/name recognition of your group to the hundreds of visitors (including current and future patrons) to the annual Festival of Trees. Priceless goodwill flowing to you for participating in a popular family event.

When: Contact Katie Schott at 515-465-3809 or Andrea Tunink at 515-360-3358 by 5 p.m. this Friday, Nov. 11 with questions or your commitment to participate.

Where: Come to the Carnegie Library Museum at 1123 Willis Ave. between noon and 5 p.m. Monday Nov. 14 or Wednesday, Nov. 16 to set up your entry.

Entries will remain on display through Dec. 18.

Why: It’s FUN. It’s free to participate. Everyone involved enjoys this event that appeals to all ages. And along the way money is raised to benefit the Carnegie Library Museum. Please note that the event remains free to all — donations are at will.

Limited Requirements/Restrictions: The term “tree” is used very loosely. It may be a tree (any size — from tabletop to six feet or more), a wreath, a table arrangement or something else. In the past we’ve had a creative wooden coat rack, rubber gloves, bicycle wheels, seed bags and more as well as more traditional trees (artificial only—no live trees). The options are truly limitless and only bound by your ideas.

Please join in the fun and contact us by Friday to let us know of your participation in this “can’t miss” highly anticipated event!
