What's Happening at the Y
FESTIVAL OF THE TREES
For 19 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 November 30-December 2 at the Northern Neck Family YMCA. With more than 500 patrons attending the three-day long affair, this is the Northern Neck Family YMCA’s largest fundraising event 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 Guardian 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.
