Put This On Your December 2015 Calendar!

For nearly 35 years, hundreds of volunteers have put on the Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival at the Burr Mansion in Fairfield, Connecticut. Millions has been raised for dozens of and dozens of charities. I went to this a few years back and was blown away by the beauty of the interior of the mansion. Don’t miss this! Take your family a sister, your mother, and friends. Everything you see inside the beautiful historic homestead, is for sale, and there is a beautiful tea too. If you’re looking to get involved in a wonderful event as a volunteer get a hold of the group now. Yes they are already working on this year’s event (2015) even though we just wrapped up the holiday season. This is their website: Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival.


Committees are already preparing for the Festival and we are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers! Volunteers are needed during the Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival to staff the wonderfully decorated rooms at the Burr Homestead.  Get a hold of: Dawn Hiltz, FCTF Staffing Coordinator dhiltz8455@aol.com
