Reverend Penny Nelson sits in front of the Sharon United, Bayhead Union, and Brule Union churches’ tree at the Festival of Trees, held earlier this month at the Fraser Cultural Centre. The tree was based on Advent, a time of eager waiting and preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus on Christmas day. The Advent tree departed from the familiar chocolate treats and focused on suggestions for activities before Christmas. George Klass photo
