The Dyer Library and Saco Museum are pleased to announce the winners of the "People's Choice" and "Kids' Choice" awards for Holidays Past, this year’s Festival of Trees! Now in its sixth year, the Festival of Trees is a community event to benefit the programs of the Dyer Library and Saco Museum. Trees, wreaths and other items were available for the raffle through Saturday, December 11, and visitors were also encouraged to vote for their favorites. Though visitors could vote for any tree or wreath, all the winners were 7-foot designer trees.

The top People's Choice award went to "A Gathering of Friends," a white-flocked tree adorned with dozens of red-feathered cardinals, sponsored and decorated by Ferry Landing Community.
