United Way preparing for Festival of Trees


NAUGATUCK — The United Way of Naugatuck and Beacon Falls is seeking groups and individuals to participate in its 13th annual Festival of Trees.

The United Way will provide trees and a limited number of wreaths at no cost. Groups or individuals are responsible for decorating the tree or wreath using a theme. Contributors can also provide their own trees. All trees must be artificial.

The United Way will run the Festival of Trees Nov. 30 at the Naugatuck Event Center, 6 Rubber Ave., to coincide with Naugatuck’s annual Winter Festival. Trees and wreaths will be auctioned off during the festival to benefit the United Way.

Trees must be delivered to the event center Nov. 19 between 3 and 6 p.m. For information, call 203-729-1564.
