The Lake Wentworth Foundation made its debut appearance in Wolfeboro’s annual Festival of Trees this year at the Wright Museum.
The event features elaborately decorated trees from more than five dozen civic organizations and businesses throughout the Wolfeboro community. This year represents the 16th that the festival has run.
The display of trees is open for viewing by the public on the weekends of December 6-7 and 13-14 as well as on Wednesday evening, Dec. 10.
Each year, proceeds from admission fees are donated to one or two local non-profit organizations. This year’s beneficiaries are End 68 Hours of Hunger and Caregivers of Southern Carroll County and Vicinity.
The Foundation entry features a variety of winter sports and recreational items, including skates, a sled, and snowshoes, representing the availability of year-round recreation on Wolfeboro’s lakes and trails.
The display is flanked by a sign proclaiming the Foundation’s commitment to “protecting Wolfeboro’s water quality, natural resources, and scenic beauty.”
