Festival of the Trees

For 16 years, the Festival of the Trees has been the highlight of the holiday season in the Northern Neck. This three-day extravaganza will be held December 5-7 at the Northern Neck Family YMCA. With more than 500 patrons attending the weekend long affair, this is one of Northern Neck Family YMCA’s largest fundraising events of the year. The Festival of the Trees inspires attendees to “deck their homes” with unique holiday decorating and gift-giving ideas. The community’s generosity during this event ensures the vitality of our Strong Communities Campaign. This year’s goal is to raise $35,000 for the campaign, which funds the Y’s Guardian Scholarship Program. This important program helps the Y fulfill its mission to provide a wide range of programs and activities for children and families within our local community who could not otherwise afford them.

Lighting of the Trees Party – Friday, December 5, 2014, at the Northern Neck Family YMCA from 6-9 p.m. This fun-filled event includes:

  • “Tastes of the Northern Neck” with heavy hors d’oeuvres & beverages from local restaurants & caterers.
  • Live auction featuring elaborate gift items donated by local artists, chefs, businesses and community groups, with Auctioneer Anita Mergener.
  • The evening concludes with the grand illumination of the Festival of the Trees featuring decorated trees, wreaths and other holiday items that are up for bid during a weekend-long silent auction.

Tickets are $50 per person, and may be purchased electronically or at the Y. This year, if you RSVP to the Lighting of the Trees party before November 21st you will receive a $50 Gift Certificate from Burkes Fine Jewelers!

Swim Lessons

Because…Swimming is a life-skill that everyone should master and water is the perfect place to exercise. The Y offers swim lessons out of concern for the safety and protection of children. Learning to swim is a life-skill that everyone should master. Knowing how to swim can save your child’s life as well as build their self-confidence, increase their endurance for all physical activity, and build competency for advancing through the sport of swimming. Each child learns and progresses at his or her own rate. Swim students are advanced to the next level only when able to proficiently and safely perform the skills within the current level.
