Christmas Tree Fest

Toowoomba’s Christmas Tree Festival Ends On High Note.

Toowoomba’s Christmas Tree Festival for 2015 has came to an end.

The Middle Ridge Uniting Church auditorium was host to an almost capacity crowd for the final concert on the evening of Friday, 18th December. The very last item was presented by the combination of a vocal ensemble and the U3A Chamber Singers together featuring four sopranos.
The Committee wish to thank all those visitors who came from near and far to view the trees, and support the other activities of the Festival through:
• Donations to our two advertised Charities, Buy – A – Bale, and the Kairos Prison Ministry ***
• Purchasing goods from Craft and Cake Stalls
• Enjoying the refreshments from the café
• Supporting the empty Christmas Tree with gifts and money
• Attending and supporting most enthusiastically the matinee and evening concert programs.
*** The Committee will divide over $4,500.00 equally between the two charities.

Was the Festival a success?
• If success is measured in monetary terms, “yes”.
• If success is measured in terms of the number of visitors, “yes” – we welcomed 4,532 people to view the trees
• But we measure real success in terms of the joy we gave to those visitors by sharing with them “the real meaning of Christmas”, and the personal stories which were shared by visitors.

Thank you also to Toowoomba Regional Radio’s FM Stations in Toowoomba, Highfields, Crow’s Nest, Pittsworth, Millmerran and Dalby for their continuing support by way of daily updates.

The Committee thanks all who were involved in the Festival, and wishes for you all a Happy and Holy Christmas.
