The 2012 Festival of Trees deadline for tree sponsorship is fast approaching, so hurry in before Nov. 16 to secure a spot for the non-profit of your choice. This is a wonderful event to help raise money, or maybe just an enjoyable time to get a beautiful tree for the holiday season. The Ross Aragon Community Center is currently looking for donations: Christmas-themed silent auction items, hors d’oeuvers and volunteers. Come by the center today to sign up, or call the center for more information at 264-4152.
