Candlelight Festival of Trees

Roger and Patsy Lepa enjoy the light lunch served during Candlelight Festival of Trees.

A good crowd decided to kick off their holidays by attending the fifth annual Candlelight Festival of Trees in Lime Springs.

Donna Ihns and Kareen Johnson provided Christmas music during the event.

Fifteen organizations, businesses and families decorated trees over the Thanksgiving weekend, and they were voted on, Sunday, Nov. 25.

Around 103 votes were cast and the winner of the contest will be announced at Christmas in Lime Springs, this weekend, Dec. 2. The winner will receive $25 for the trouble.

The Community Club had several trees decorated, including the centerpiece twirling tree!

Other groups participating were Tony Roberts family (Sharing is Caring); Library (Summer Reading Program), Lidtke Mill (seed ornaments), Pool (tye dye tree), Lime Springs Children’s Theatre Troupe (Charlotte’s Web), Lime Springs Junior Community Club (Take a candy cane in thanks), Spring Ahead Learning Center (Word Find), Community Center (Angels for Lime Springs), Marcia Bannister (Pampered Chef), Chat & Do (Let it Snow), Senior Citizens (Cookies & Cards), Legion Auxiliary (Salute our Flag, Salute our Veterans), Franci Lepa (Christmas is the Sweetest Season with all edible decorations), Family Fun & Fitness (sports, etc.) and Monday/Thursday Coffee Club (Cups of Friendship).

If you missed the event this year, some trees will still be on display until after Christmas in Lime Springs.
