2021 Festival of Trees – The Grinch that Stole 2021

Tom Wilbur, CEO and Foundation President, draws the winning entries!

In the wake of COVID-19, the Grinch is at it again, but holiday cheer continues! 2021 Plans included drawings for 10 absolutely epic holiday trees displayed at area business locations from December 4th – December 14th (final drawing was December 15th). This was an unprecedented year of giving! We handed out over 2,000 complimentary tickets over an 11-day period across Cusick, Newport and Oldtown.  This was not a raffle, but a drawing to win any of the 10 amazing prize trees. Thank you for supporting the NHHS Foundation and the local businesses that made this year’s tree showcase possible.
