Annual Lighting of the Trees celebration

DSCF0169The Fine Arts Center for the New River Valley held its annual “Lighting of the Trees” Dec. 5 at the Fine Arts Center. This year’s theme is “A Gingerbread Christmas.”

The trees are decorated by various clubs and organizations that adorn the Fine Arts Center’s Main Gallery; for many of them it offers an opportunity to expose their programs to people who may not be aware of the services and needs that are ongoing in the New River Valley.

The following organizations decorated a tree, Dublin Elementary School, Medi Home Health & Hospice, Pulaski County Library, Pulaski Theatre, Relay for Life, Sunset Hills Garden Club, Hensel Eckman YMCA and Friends of the Fine Arts Center.  Rhonda and Henry Whitehurst decorated the gallery’s window and Rhonda Whitehurst made the beautiful gingerbread houses displayed.

The decorated trees are available for viewing and open to the public through Jan. 7, 2014. The Fine Arts Center will be closed for Christmas from noon Dec. 24 through Dec. 25 and from noon Dec. 31 through Jan 1.  Light refreshments of cookies and punch will be available. Please plan to visit the Fine Arts Center and view the decorated trees. For more information contact the Fine Arts Center at 980-7363. The Fine Arts Center is located on 21 W. Main St. in Pulaski.
