Troy University’s Dothan Campus is hosting this year’s Festival of Trees from now until Dec. 14 on the second floor of Everett Hall. Local non-profits and TROY’s colleges, student clubs and corporate partners will have trees up for display for the community to enjoy.
“This is a great event to learn about local businesses and organizations while also viewing the creativity of the community members,” said Taylor Jones, a TROY Dothan student ambassador. “Here at Troy University’s Dothan Campus, we want to exemplify those assets by coming together to enjoy this time not only as a school, but as a community. Bring your Christmas cheer and join us in celebrating the most wonderful time of the year!”
On Dec. 5 at 2 p.m., the public is invited to come vote for their favorite tree during the Celebration of Trees event featuring a welcome by Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Dr. Kerry Palmer followed by fellowship and refreshments.
The winner will be announced on Dec. 6 and will receive a 3D-printed “Power T” trophy courtesy of TROY’s 3D printing department.
