The town of Hamburg and the Girl Scouts of Western New York would like to thank everyone who donated Christmas items to the second annual Southtowns Festival of Trees, which was held at Woodlawn Beach State Park on Dec. 14th and 15th.
The event was again a huge success, and we were able to assist 29 families (more than last year) have a special Christmas.
Because this event was so successful, we have decided to continue it in 2014. We are again looking for Christmas items (in need: artificial Christmas trees), which will be accepted throughout the year, and can be dropped off at the town supervisorís office at town hall.
Thank you again for all your donations, and all who assisted with this event. We especially appreciated all the artificial Christmas tree donations. We were able to find a home for all of them.
This truly is the town that friendship built.
