(Photo/June De Wit) Boyden Festival of Trees, ..... community Christmas celebration was Dec. 8 June De wit I Writer The Boyden Festival of Trees was Monday evening, Dec. 8, in the Demco Community Center. There was a nice turnout with many people from the community present. The decorated trees were gorgeous and turned the community center into a winter wonderland. This year's theme was "The Sweet Story of Christmas." Members of the commu- nity were able to vote on their favorite trees. Voting was done by placing quarters into boxes by each tree. The proceeds were donated to Boyden charities. Winners, announced at 8 p.m., were: First: Citizens State Bank and Boyden Insurance Second: St. John's Lutheran Church Third: Farmers Coop Society Santa's Favorite: Premier Communications. People were invited to bring their favorite candy dish to display. Some were antiques, while others were family heirlooms. The kids had a good time visiting with Santa, listening to books being read to them and singing to the community at the end of the evening. There was also a coloring contest, and later a drawing for books and other prizes. Seven contestants competed in a fudge bake-off. Everyone was allowed to taste the creations and vote on which they thought was best. The overall winner of that contest was Darnell Clark. A few drawings were held throughout the evening. People could guess how many piec- es of candy were contained in two different jars. One jar contained 122 pieces, and Harriet Green won that jar with a guess of 123 pieces. The other jar was a little bigger and contained 184 pieces and Audrey Eppinga guessed the amount exactly. Many in the community also donated school supplies. This was chosen as the 2014 Community Charity. Book bags, pencil boxes, child-sized scissors, accordion file folders, and small boys' and girls' jogging pants were just a few of the items donated. There was a collec- tion box placed at the festivities. At the end of the evening, a winner was drawn for a special decorated Christmas tree that was raffled off. Tickets were sold at Citizens State Bank, Farmers Coop Society, Boyden Library and Boyden City Office. Harriet Green's name was again drawn as the winner! 3-D printer gifted to Western Christian June De wit I Writer each. "So, it's a nice gift," Fenchel said.
