I had the opportunity to visit the Festival of Trees on Friday, November 30th. For those of you who are unaware of this awesome tradition, companies and organizations around the county sponsor and decorate trees that will be delivered to other organizations around town for the month of December. Before the trees are delivered to their destinations, they are put on display at the F&M Trolley Barn.
|12 Days of Autism Tree|
While there were many beautifully decorated Christmas trees, one stood out among the rest.
"Twelve Days of Autism" was sponsored by Blake and Linn Evans and were decorated by North Rowan Elementary K-5 PACSS Classes!
In place of ornaments and tinsel were items that represent the life of a child with autism.
