Festival of Trees

Design Innovators Club members have been preparing handmade Christmas tree ornaments for the annual Festival of Trees event. During the months of October and November members hold workshops to design and create a variety of holiday tree ornaments in a special theme called the “Designer Tree.” The Festival of Trees has been held for over 20 years, raising funds for the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau and the Cradle of Aviation Museum. Hundreds of guests came to the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City to see all the decorated trees and to bid on them at the end of the event, with the proceeds going to the two groups. After spending many club hours together to create these ornaments the members went to the museum to decorate their own trees. They were all thrilled with the outcome and very proud of their work and efforts going towards such a wonderful cause.
