The Grinnell Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution tree received the most votes and was the overall winner at the annual Friends of Drake Community Library Festival of Trees currently on display.
The Festival of Trees is a fun, family event designed to bring the Grinnell community together with all proceeds going to the library. The Festival of Trees opening was held on Friday, Dec. 2.
This year’s event features 21 trees decorated by local groups, individuals, families and clubs. The decorated trees fill the main and children’s areas of the library. Earlier, visitors were able to vote for their favorite tree or trees with cash donations. The event raised a total of $431.15 for Friends of Drake Library. The trees will be on display through Christmas.
