Festival of Trees includes a tree that represents Bellefonte Area School District
With a theme of “unity and understanding” inspired by the book, “We Are All Dots,” you could find a tree that represented the Bellefonte Area School District at the annual Festival of Trees event, organized by Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology, was held Dec. 7-9 at CPI, 540 N. Harrison Road, Pleasant Gap. Each ornament on the BASD tree was created by students in elementary, middle and high school. This year’s event included 70 decorated trees by businesses and organizations from around Centre County. Theresa Brickley, from CPI, said this was the most trees the event ever included – all which came from Kuhns Tree Farm in Boalsburg. Many of those trees were also donated to eligible families in need. Money raised through the event helps support the United Way of Centre County and student-run organizations at CPI.
