As this young EAC patron might be wondering, “When is someone going to decorate this tree?” Those eager for an eyeful of seasonal cheer may console themselves, because the 13th Annual Festival of Trees, a festive fundraiser for Eastport Arts Center’s year-round programming, is just around the corner on December 10. A seasonal highlight, the event features a glittering forest of tabletop-size trees, lovingly decorated by supporters of the EAC, and available for bid at a lively event held downstairs at the Center.

Our current list of individual and team decorators includes: Kelly Forfa for Breakwater Bagels; Jude Kempe; the Little Water Street Gang; Lysa Intrator; Catherine J.S. Lee; Eastport Senior Center; Manuela Brice; Peavey Memorial Library; Eastport Pickleball Club; St. Croix Garden Club; Georgie Kendall; Meg Colbert; David Oja; Alberta Hunter; Cathy Adelman; Susan Weaver and Kris Smith; Jessica Williams; Cynthia Morse (solo); Cynthia Morse and friends; and Melissa Newcomb.
