The Heritage League is holding their 47th annual Holiday of Trees on Thursday, Dec. 5 and Friday, Dec. 6 at Westminster Presbyterian Church. The hours of the event are Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (On Friday at 6:30 the Raffle will be held and food service will close.) The admission price remains at $1 per person. Tickets may be purchased at the door or from The Heritage League members.
Proceeds from this year’s ticket sales will go to the Lincoln Music Teachers Association Music Outreach Program [LMTA-MOP] which provides low-cost music lessons, instruments, repairs, sheet music, and community performance opportunities for up to 50 area students who could not afford the full price of lessons, but who would find great benefit from the study of music. The student must be nominated by a person in authority, such as a school music teacher, a homeroom teacher, guidance counselor or LMTA teacher as being interested in music, financially in need, and in a position where music would be beneficial. For more information contact 402-477-5647, MOP@LMTA.info, or www.LMTA.info [Music Outreach Program]. LMTA is a 501 (c)(3) corporation.
Holiday of Trees will display 20 beautiful trees decorated by community members and organizations, including LMTA. The Holi-day of Trees also features music by local adult & student musicians, Santa Claus from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. each day, Mrs. Santa through-out the day, expanded Attic Treasures, Pantry of homemade food items, Raffle of several special items, and a Café. In September of 1973 our charter member, Cec Cather, presented the Holiday of Trees idea as a fundraiser for local charities. The first Holiday of Trees was held in November of the same year with 10 decorated trees and a bake sale. $1000 was raised and donated to the newly opened Burn Center at St. Elizabeth Hospital. This tradition has continued for 47 years and over $250,000 has been donated to local organizations.
The Heritage League Woman’s Club was organized in 1966 and is affiliated with the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC). The Heritage League was organized for charitable and educational purposes and is a 501(c)(3) organization.
