Festival of Trees and Lights 2019 : day 1 of 5

The Des Moines Woodworkers, Des Moines Woodturners and Mid-Iowa Wood Carvers have sponsored and decorated a tree the Festival of Trees and Lights for many years. You can get involved by making and donating ornaments for our tree at one of our meetings, volunteering to help at the event, or just by attending!

Volunteer help is needed November 21st, 24th and 25th plus any help you can give with ornaments. A little pilgrim told us that snacks and beverages may be provided. If you are interested, contact Bob Pontius at (641) 895-1886 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
