The Mason Sieck Memorial Tree featured at the Drake Community Library Festival of Trees.
The annual Festival of Trees event sponsored by the Friends of Drake Community Library is currently underway. This year’s event features 16 trees decorated by individuals, clubs and businesses. The decorated trees fill the main and children’s areas of the library, and visitors can vote on their favorite trees with donations. The tree that earns the highest dollar amount, wins.
To make the voting more pandemic friendly, visitors can pick up an envelope near the entrance, check the tree they wish to vote for, place their donation in the envelope, and turn it in at the front desk. Voting for trees will continue through Friday, Dec. 10. The Festival of Trees is a fun, family event to bring the Grinnell community together with all proceeds going to the library. The trees will be on display through Christmas.
