The 33rd Festival of Trees welcomes donations of creative and festive holiday wreaths. Your support is valued and critical to the success of the event. Donors will be acknowledged on the website and in the program booklet if the contract is received by Friday, October 1, 2017.

A checklist has been provided for your convenience. Please adhere to the guidelines as follows:

❑ Contact the wreath chairman to secure a wreath contract.
❑ Request one contract per wreath.
❑ Submit completed contract by Friday, October 1, 2017 to ensure inclusion in the
program book.
❑ Select a wreath between 22” and 26” in diameter.
❑ Choose a yuletide, traditional or children’s theme. Consider salability in your design.
❑ Use high quality, permanent and nonflammable materials.
