Golf Mill Presents Festival of Trees
Nov. 20, 2010 — Supervisor Carol Teschky represented Maine Township at the November 20 lighting ceremony for the Golf Mill Shopping Center Festival of Trees, a friendly competition that invites organizations to decorate trees that will be on display in front of JC Penney from November 20 - December 4. Supervisor Teschky addressed the crowd gathered in advance of the arrival of Santa Claus. Musical and dancing performances and free goodies were also part of the festive event.
Families, friends and shoppers can vote for their favorite tree until December 4 by donating non-perishable food items. The event will help replenish the Maine Township Food Pantry. Each non-perishable item will count as one vote. The tree with the most "votes" wins and the winner will receive a shopping gift card and trophy. The MaineStreamers decorated the Township's entry. In all, 10 organizations decorated trees in the theme of "Then and Now" reflecting the shopping center's theme this year during its 50th anniversary.
Regina Verdico, Director of Marketing says, "Golf Mill is an established center that continues to support the Niles community with unique outreach programs. We are excited about our new Festival of Trees program and supporting the Maine Township Food Pantry."
