Festival of Trees back at Noble with silent auction and gala

SALISBURY — The Festival of Trees and accompanying silent auction  continue this week from noon to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 1, and Friday, Dec. 2. The event returned this year after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As visitors walk in they will notice the large toy soldiers at the entrance, reminiscent of “The Nutcracker Suite.”

The festival winds up Saturday, Dec. 3, with a gala from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 per person.

There is also a 50/50 raffle and a children’s toy raffle.

At 6:45 p.m. the bidding closes in the silent auction. Meredith Dittmar of the Noble Horizons Auxiliary said a team springs into action and the winners are announced shortly after the close of the bidding.

The Festival of Trees is a major fundraiser for the Auxiliary.

Recent projects of the group include installing a new WiFi system at Noble (the old one was overwhelmed by the increased activity during the pandemic) and purchasing a vehicle to take residents out for appointments and errands.
