Carpinteria Lions Club’s Festival of Trees Opens Friday

Proceeds will benefit the Carpinteria Future Farmers program at Carpinteria High School

In its second year, the Carpinteria Lions Club’s Festival of Trees is fast becoming a signature community event.

With 20 local businesses, clubs and organizations sponsoring the decoration of a tree, the venue is a showcase of eclectic holiday themes that will please visitors of all ages.

The Festival of Trees, 700 Linden Ave. in Carpinteria, will open at 11 a.m. Friday and run daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Dec. 10, with a raffle drawing for each tree to be held at noon Sunday, Dec. 11.

The event is designed to aid youth group projects in the community by selling raffle tickets for $1 each for a chance to win a tree or trees of your choice. In 2010 with 13 trees decorated, $14,751 was raised to benefit the Carpinteria Education Foundation’s Culinary Art project. In 2011, the net proceeds will benefit the Carpinteria Future Farmers program at Carpinteria High School.

The Lions Club of Carpinteria invites the entire community to visit this unique holiday venue. It’s a great holiday idea generator and excellent way to support youth in the community.

— Vincent Choate is a co-chair of the Carpinteria Lions Club’s Festival of Trees.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
