The BKW Explorers 4H group joined in a tree decorating party in Knox on Sunday, Nov. 21, as part of the Helderberg Family and Community Organization (HFCO)’s Hope and Peace Community Festival of Trees.

“Our 4H group decorated with head (emojis), hands (their hands), heart and health (red cross), and four leaf clovers (4H symbol),” said 4H advisor and math teacher Tammy Fisher.

A tree lighting ceremony, open to the community, will take place on Dec. 4 at the festival site behind the Knox Fire Department. Festival trees will be on display through Jan. 8, 2022.

This year’s event is the third annual Hope and Peace Community Festival of Trees.
