FAIRVIEW— The new curator of the Fairview Museum wants to start a new holiday tradition in Sanpete County, something that might be described as the Sanpete version of “Festival of Trees.”

Tree donation and decoration began on Nov. 21. There will be an open house celebration for the Christmas tree exhibit on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m.

The trees will remain on display at the museum until Dec. 17. Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m-4 p.m.

On Dec. 17, the trees will be taken to needy families. Brown says anyone donating a decorated tree can decide which family will receive it, or the museum staff can choose.

Brown says besides being an opportunity to be charitable, the tree project is a good way for local businesses to promote themselves by donating a tree.
