Trinity's Celebration Tree

                    Celebration Tree in the foyer with Montessori students' boots all lined up!

History:

Trinity’s Celebration Tree was created as a fund raising event and will be an enduring reminder of the 150th Anniversary of Trinity United Church in Collingwood.
 
The Celebration Tree was Funded by:
  • Touch of Tartan 2003
  • January Thaw 2004
  • British Night 2004
  • Fall Follies 2005

The funds generated through the sale of the 1000 Leaves, 17 Apples, Branches and Trunk have been earmarked for the exterior restoration of the Church such as brick re-pointing and repairs as well as the refurbishing of Trinity’s Pipe Organ.  Other projects such as the 150th Anniversary project will also be funded through this campaign.

The Celebration Tree was officially dedicated on October 26, 2003.


Locating the Tree:

Trinity’s Celebration Tree has been placed on the wall in the main foyer, just outside Hunter hall.  At this location it is believed that Trinity’s Celebration Tree will be a constant reminder of the various reasons we choose to celebrate and for all to see.

You can contribute to this fund through the purchase or pledge of a Leaf, celebrating and recording an event in your life or for a person important to you and your family or to the community.  Branches and Apples are also available for those who may wish to make a larger contribution to Trinity’s fund raising event.

Installing the Celebration Tree:

Bill Nicholson installed the tree.   Thank you Bill for the dedication and time invested to install the Tree including all Leaves and Apples.
 

 

The Celebration Tree is:

to celebrate all aspects of our lives in the Church and beyond.
