Festival Of Trees
To get us
in the holiday spirit (yes, it’s coming!) Sticks & Stones Farm in
Barnstead, NH sponsors a yearly festival exhibiting Christmas trees

in Laconia. Last year more than two dozen trees were decorated and
later donated to needy families after the event.

Santa, hot cocoa & cider, and a bonfire for marshmallow toasting. Soak
in a little holiday spirit while participating in a good cause.
proceeds will benefit the Greater Lakes Child Advocacy (GLCAC). The
GLCAC affords a child-friendly place and trained forensic interviewers
for victims of child abuse, coordinates the agencies required to
investigate such cases and works with caregivers to help the victim and
family heal. “There is no charge to victims for the services we
provide,” said Meghan Noyes, Director of Program Services, “but we are a
non-profit agency relying on fundraising, grants and charitable
contributions. We are fortunate to have Barbara and Guy Comtois from
Sticks & Stones Farm offering this event yearly to graciously benefit
the child victims and families we serve,” Noyes said. Information about
the GLCAC can be found online at www.cac-nh.org.
