The annual Festival of Trees hosted by Golf Mill Shopping Center is a tradition filled with generous giving. Visitors and shoppers at the Center are invited to vote for their favorite tree by ballot by December 11. The organization whose tree receives the most votes will receive $500. Maine Township's tree (right) was adorned with hand-made ornaments decorated by the youth in our Art in the Town program and if chosen as the winner, the $500 would be given to support our food pantry.
