Festival of Trees!

The Pierce Gem Team’s Festival of Trees will be enjoyed this Saturday, Dec. 8, from 5 to 8 p.m., at Pierce Community Center. This is one magical evening, with the live auction of gift baskets, artwork, delectable food, and many one-of-a-kind beautiful items. Our auctioneer is none-other than Leroy Kuykendall, who always entertains so well while holding court on the stage. Musical entertainment will be offered by Shania Rales, singer and guitarist extraordinaire.

There are door prizes, and original centerpieces that will be given away. As always, there will be a kids’ craft room to keep the kiddos happy while parents enjoy the auction.

All proceeds from this auction go toward improving Pierce in so many ways. In 2018, just a few of the Gem - funded projects were: free Community Movies in the ball field and the community center (to be continued!), new city barricades, video and sound equipment for Pierce community - sponsored events, contributions toward the new Main Street fence, and new Pierce City holiday lights on Main Street. The Gem Team gets things done!

We hope to see you at Festival of Trees.
