Holiday of Trees 2020
Welcome to our virtual 2020 Holiday of Trees event!
We would first like to say a big thank you to our tree decorators who so willingly and generously gave their time and talents to decorate a tree in their own spaces, photograph it and then send us the image of their tree. We always appreciate their efforts, but even more so in this most unusual year.
A big thank you goes to Kevin and Norm of Kevin Brown Design and Michael Reinmiller. Without their guidance and expertise none of this would have been possible.
We would also like to thank you, our guests, for visiting our new website and viewing the Tree and Community Crops videos. We hope you enjoy your experience with us.
Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones. Take care and stay safe. We so very much look forward to seeing you all in person at the 2021 Holiday of Trees event!
Proceeds in 2020 to Community Crops
Community Crops encourages a broad range of Lincoln’s population, especially low income and immigrant families, to grow their own food. Started with one community garden in 2003, Community Crops has grown to 11 garden sites, a training farm, production greenhouse, mobile farmers market & gardening and cooking education for all ages.
The 2019 Holiday of Trees
$5000 of proceeds from the 2019 Holiday of Trees went to the LMTA Music Outreach Program offered through the Lincoln Music Teachers Association. The program offers low cost music lessons to “at risk” or needy children. A maximum of 50 students receive lessons in piano, organ, percussion, violin, viola, voice, guitar, woodwinds, theory, and composition. They also receive free instruments, music books, and performance opportunities. Each student must be recommended by an adult who is familiar with the child’s talent and interest. For more information, visit LMTA.info and click on Music Outreach Program.
In addition, $1000 was sent to the Lincoln Food Bank after the pandemic began to assist those in need.
