34th ANNUAL CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL, 2012
At the MONROE COUNTY HISTORICAL MUSEUM
The Christmas Tree Festival was back for another year- thanks to Monroe County voters! Perhaps you went to the kickoff Open House, and got to see the many trees and wreaths specially decorated to make the museum more festive for the holidays. Thanks to all the groups and clubs and schools (all of Jefferson District's Sodt Elementary school participated and visited the museum!) who took the time to showcase their creativity. Get your ideas for this year's Festival- our 35th year.
