On Nov. 22 – 23, 2014, the Council for the Arts will partner with the Onslow Caregivers, Inc. for the 12th annual Festival of Trees; a winter wonderland filled with decorated trees, holiday displays and entertainment at the American Legion Building, 146 Broadhurst Road in Jacksonville, NC.

The Council for the Arts is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual “Wee Little Trees” at this year’s “Festival of Trees” presented by the Onslow Caregivers, Inc.  for patients of Onslow County Home Health and Hospice programs.

Everyone is invited to join the holiday fun and become part of the spirit of the season.

Only the first 50 wee trees will be accepted, so get your application filled out.
