Maple Mountain High School’s FFA Chapter will participate in this year’s Festival of Trees.  The Festival of Trees is in its 39th year and operates through a board of all women who volunteer their time to benefit the Primary Children’s Medical Center.  Businesses and families throughout the state enter the festival displaying their talents and abilities in creating a unique Christmas tree.  Over the years, the Festival of Trees has been copied throughout the United States and Canada; but, the Salt Lake City Festival of Trees is still called the “granddaddy” of them all.

The theme of the FFA Chapter’s tree is Agriculture--“All Things Beautiful.”  FFA students will be decorating a 5’ tree; all proceeds will be donated to Primary Children’s Hospital.  

We invite the public to view the Maple Mountain FFA Tree at the Festival of Trees that will be held at the South Town Exposition Center, December 2-5, 10 am - 10 pm.  Monetary donations are greatly appreciated. Monetary donations can be taken to Maple Mountain High School Finance Office, or donation jars will be found throughout the school and community. For more information contact Mrs. Monica Giffing at 801-794-6840 or E-mail at monica.giffing@nebo.edu.  Information can also be found on the MMHS website. The donation deadline is November 19, 2009. Let’s see if we can make it a Christmas to remember for these important children who need us.
