Bergengren Credit Union Trims an IYC Theme Tree

Bergengren Credit Union’s Entry
– Antigonish Festival of Trees

In a recent Festival of Trees event organized by Antigonish Guysborough Early Childhood Intervention, Bergengren Credit Union decorated a tree in an International Year of the Cooperative theme (in colors of red and gold) for this annual event held at the People’s Place Library in Antigonish.

The Festival of Trees sees local businesses volunteer to decorate a Christmas tree in a theme of their choice, and offer a prize valued at $250 which can consist of the decorations used to decorate the tree or a separate prize such as goods, cash or gift certificates, etc. Each tree has a ballot box placed beside it, and people in the community are encouraged to purchase ballots to place in the boxes for a chance to win. All proceeds from the ballot sales go to support the Antigonish Guysborough Early Childhood Intervention Program.

This is always a popular event for families in the local community to attend during the Holiday Season. The trees are available for viewing by the public during the normal business hours of the People’s Place Library between November 25th and December 19th.
