Festival of Trees is this weekend

Are you ready to go to an ever popular craft fair this weekend (Saturday and Sunday)? Buy homemade gifts early. The Junior League of Duluth is selling their new cookbook which is a combination of the best recipes through the years. I think it is only $15.00 for a whole lot of cooking and baking fun.

This year the Festival of Trees is in Pioneer Hall. Next year it will be back in its same locations. Someone reserved that space 5 years ago. There will be lots of great new booths this year.

I know we have a great fundraising booth. We have little gnomes (homemade) on a small tree. We have beautiful fleece scarves for only $2.00 and so many more surprises to raise money for our favorite charity, Circle of Hope.
