Christmas Dinner Food Drive - "Can" you help?

Help Us Collect Enough Food for 400 Christmas Dinner Boxes

In partnership with Sunshine Mill and Salvation Army...

Please join us in collecting food for Christmas Dinner for the less fortunate in our community.  Salvation Army will be distributing 400 Christmas Dinner food boxes this year.  This is double the number they distributed last year due to the temporary closing of St. Vincent De Paul's food bank.

Festival of Trees

Festival of Trees 2014 will be an event to remember!  Be sure to mark your calendar for Friday, December 5 for our live auction of 30+ decorated trees. These one-of-a-kind trees have been donated to the event by individuals, businesses and organizations.  From nutcrackers, to snowmen and a special tree made of blown glass, these trees will delight viewers and buyers alike.  This is a 21 and over event that takes place at The Dalles Civic Auditorium in historic downtown The Dalles.  Admission is free, but registration is greatly appreciated.  Festival of Trees also features a silent auction with themed gifts and baskets of every kind.

Community Day takes place Saturday, December 6 following the live auction event.  Community Day is sponsored by Fred Meyer and is open to EVERYONE in the community. Attendees will have a chance to view the trees before they are delivered to their new homes and Santa will be there for photos with children.  Admission is free and the event runs from 9:00 AM to noon.
