This Friday, AmeriCorps Alums will converge upon The Fantasy of Trees helping with setup for the event. The Fantasy of Trees benefits the East Tennessee Children's Hospital and we look forward to committing our Friday evening to this worth while effort.
About The Fantasy of Trees:
The Fantasy of Trees has been a holiday tradition in East
Tennessee since 1985. In 2012, the 28th annual event will showcase a
theme of "The 12 Days of Christmas," highlighted with whimsical
decorations and designs that celebrate the lyrics of the famous holiday
song, from the seven swans a-swimming to the five golden rings, and
yes, even to the partridge in a pear tree.
About East Tennessee Children's Hospital:
Since opening its doors in 1937, Children’s Hospital has
changed and grown tremendously. It had humble beginnings as a small
hospital for children with polio. Today, Children’s is a Comprehensive
Regional Pediatric Center offering a wide range of pediatric health care
Hope to see everyone out there!
Any questions, please contact AmeriCorps Alums, Knoxville.
We are also in the process of planning our November planning meeting for our Core Planning Group that will hopefully occur early next week. Reflection on The Fantasy of Trees and a leadership update are coming soon.
