Even though we are experiencing summer-like temperatures, we are busily preparing for our annual holiday event, the Calvert Hospice Festival of Wreaths! This year the Festival of Wreaths will be held on Saturday, November 18th from 10 am to 4 pm at Calvert High School in Prince Frederick. We hope that you will join us for a day filled with all sorts of holiday fun!
Santa will be arriving in style courtesy of the Prince Frederick Volunteer Fire Department at 10am to kick off the festivities. We will have holiday crafts for the kids and a wreath-making workshop for a nominal fee.
Last year we had over 70 handcrafted wreaths donated and expect to have even more this year! Wreaths were made with everything from tulle to seashells, from recycled maps to driftwood. So many unique and wonderful designs! Over a dozen artists and crafters have already signed up to create fabulous wreaths to be put on display and made available for purchase. If you happen to be ‘crafty’ (or know someone who is), please consider donating a wreath to add to our display. We will be putting some wreaths into a Silent Auction and all others will simply be for sale.
Memorial poinsettias, ornaments and Calvert Hospice cookbooks will be also be available for sale. If you would like to pre-order one or more poinsettias in memory of a loved one, please use the attached form. The poinsettias will be on display throughout the day of the festival and can be picked up later that afternoon. We will also be raffling off a very special wreath filled with gift cards from area restaurants and businesses at the end of the day!
All proceeds from this event will directly benefit the Burnett Calvert Hospice House. Thank you for your continuing support of our mission and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
