I wish to thank all those who stood by me and helped me with The Festival of Trees for the Apopka Historical Society. Yes it was a lot of work, partly because I got started later than normal, but it was successful, thanks to those that gave me a hand, and I did enjoy the project.
The decorated Christmas trees were outstanding, and the plants were exceptionally beautiful and disappeared very fast.
On the first night the Bake sale, chaired by Carolyn Booth, sold out. My heartfelt thanks to Pat and Paul Blackwell who helped decorate the Museum and much, much more. Sharon Fenwick, also helped with decorations for the Museum. Betty Ann Huntsman was my mentor and friend.
Doris Griffith, Faye Odom and Arlene Croll helped keep the Museum open during the week and Jacki Sandler created the beautiful Tree that took second place.
I can’t forget Angela Nicols who couldn’t be there because she was on a cruise but she gave me her key to the Museum that allowed me to come and go and get things done when needed. The Directors and staff of the Museum were there when needed.
Till Next year – Joyce Hayward
