Participants Wanted for Christmas Tree Extravaganza


The Milford Public Library is preparing for their annual Christmas Tree Extravaganza that will take place during the month of December. This fundraiser will allow he Milford Public Library to make a monetary donation to a local family in need.

Kay Hudson, Director of the Milford Public Library, invites local organizations to participate again this year by decorating a Christmas tree using the theme of their choice. The community will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite tree with a monetary donation.

By decorating a tree, local organizations will help to support this year’s recipient, the Hayes Family of Lincoln, DE. Their two-year old daughter, Saylor was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia last November. With determination and perseverance Saylor has made it to the maintenance process of her treatment where she will continue to battle the disease until 2013. Being in remission she is beginning to grow back hair and is playing with her two brothers at home.

Through donations last year, the Christmas Tree Extravaganza raised $450 for the Milford Food Pantry. Participating organizations will be responsible for providing the tree, decorations and lights. The floor of the library will be marked with masking tape for the placement of the trees. The library asks that each organization create a sign with the name of the organization or business to identify the tree. Trees can be set up for display between November 26 and November 30 and should be removed between January 3 and January 5.
