MIDDLEPORT — A Festival of Trees and a Family Christmas Spectacular will be staged at Middleport Village Hall on Pearl Street in Middleport on Friday, Dec. 7, from 6 to 9 p.m.
The event is being staged by the Meigs Band Alumni Boosters as a continuation of its mission to support the Meigs High School band in its effort to raise money for a permanent concession stand at the new football stadium.
According to an announcement from Julie Howard and Teresa Brown, beginning Sunday there will be trees and wreaths on display in the village hall auditorium for the public to view. Then the following Friday, Dec. 7, at 8 p.m. as a part of the program, there will be a live auction of the decorated trees, wreaths or mantel arrangements on display.
For those who are unable to decorate a tree or wreath or to make a mantel arrangement, the committee is asking they donate an item for the Chinese auction.
The festival will feature holiday music by the Big Bend Community Band, and games will be conducted for the children.
