Festival of Trees The Heron Lake Community Club met on Wednesday, November 14, to finalize plans for the upcoming Festival of Trees and Soup Dinner. The events are scheduled for Sunday, December 2. Santa has announced that he will be there, ready to hear the wishes of the children in the area, so get your cameras ready and bring your list. Now is the time to plan for a tree for the Festival of Trees. Decorate your tree according to a theme of your choice. Past themes have included “Silver Bells,” “Spread the Good News,” and “O Holy Night.” Voting will take place by the public. Register your intent to have a tree at City Hall so space can be allotted. Trees may be set up on Friday, November 30, Saturday, December 1 or the morning of Sunday, December 2. Trees should be in place before the soup dinner begins at 11: a.m. The Heron Lake Library Board will be working with the Community Club on a bake sale. The LaCrosse 4-H Club will be holding a cookie walk, beginning at 10:00 a.m. At 10:30, the Library Board will be holding a story hour. Soup Dinner The Soup Dinner will begin at 11:00 a.m. at the Heron Lake Community Center. Chicken noodle, chili, vegetable beef and broccoli cheese soups are being planned. These will be served with choice of breads, crackers and beverages. Ice cream with toppings will be served for dessert. After dinner, browse the display of trees and vote for your favorites. The tree with the most votes will win the Peoples Choice award of $50. This year, there will also be a judge’s choice award, $35. A quilt is being raffled off, donated to the Heron Lake Community Club by Sew Unique. Tickets are available now at City Hall, and will be available the day of the event. Santa Claus will be passing out treat bags for the youngsters, who can visit with him between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. The Tri County News will also be taking photos during his visit. Donations for the food shelf will be gladly accepted at the Festival of Trees. In this season of giving, it is important to remember those who are less fortunate. All donations will be presented to the Southwest Star Concept School for their annual food drive.
