A wreath representing Tusculum College was among the Christmas decorations featured in the recent “Festival of Trees” at Niswonger Performing Arts Center.
The beautifully designed wreath was decorated by Deborah Davis, associate athletic director, compliance officer and senior women’s administrator. The theme for the wreath was “A Tapestry of Pioneer Pride,” reflecting the theme of the recent inauguration of Tusculum’s president, Dr. Nancy B. Moody.
Wellington Place Assisted Living and the Niswonger Performing Arts Center hosted the Festival of Trees, which featured trees, wreaths, swags, topiaries center pieces and gingerbread houses all decorated for the holidays.
The Festival of Trees was open to the public from November 15 through 22. Admission was a can of food to be donated to the Greene County Food Bank. A silent auction was held of the various items with proceeds benefitting the Niswonger Performing Arts Center and A Safe Harbor Home, Inc., a transitional shelter for victims of domestic violence.
Both the Food Bank and Safe Harbor Home have received the assistance of Tusculum students in the past. For example, students have volunteered at the Food Bank and painted murals for Safe Harbor Home’s new consignment store during the last Nettie Fowler McCormick Service Day.
