"With the Festival of Trees, we have gained tremendous growth and interest in support," Lloyd said. "The funds from the festival and correlated events as well as the emotional support helps us go along day-to-day, helping the peo- ple who need us." The festival includes activities in addition to the displays of deco- rated, lighted trees and wreaths. This year featured a lunch with Santa Claus and a Boot Scootin' Family Christmas. There were raffles and bake sales conducted through the ,;veekend. All items, for the raffles and the Sweet Shop were donated. Winners in the drawings are the following: a visit with Santa Claus - Carol Wilkins, Georgetown; handcrafted porcelain doll - Ruth Sneller, Seaford; Longaberger basket tree - Judi Thoroughgood, Millsboro; hand-stitched patch, work quilt - Rosanne Pack, Mil- ford; wreath - Joanne Thomas, Millsboro; stocking full of beanie babies - John Herholdt, Harring- ton; and 50-50 - Kay Webb, Mil- ton. Dorman and Lloyd said that fi- nal figures are not in for the differ- ent fundraising components but they know that Festival of Trees 1997 in Georgetown earned more than $30,000. Attendance and in- terest indicates that they will sur- pass that figure this year. "This is my fourth year of in- volvement," Dorman said. "Get- ting the festival ready is a year long in the planning. We have had one wrap-up meeting and we already have decorators making their plans for next year. All the credit for the success goes to hav- ing the right people in the right jobs." For information on Delaware Hospice, call 302-478-5705.
