The Gifting Tree & Downtown Cary Christmas


The Gifting Tree in downtown Cary for Christmas

Once again downtown Cary is decorated with beautiful trees all up and down Academy Street!  The Annual Gifting Tree Project has started and voting is open through December 17th.   For the past few years our Smith & Smith, CPA firm has participated in this festive event.  I am sad to say that I missed the deadline this year!  But I am still voting for my favorite tree and highlighting a few in my blog today.  I had the pleasure of attending the Annual Town of Cary Tree Lighting on Saturday and took time to walk up and down Academy Street and look at every single tree.  They are so beautiful!  Of course I love the Rotary Clubs of Cary Tree (sponsored by all 5 Rotary Clubs in Cary) and the Graceful Expressions Tree (they are one of our clients).   A new tree this year that I REALLY like is the Nikki’s Tree of Remembrance.  I don’t know the story behind this tree, but I like it because it has foam snowflakes and sharpies all over the tree.  People are encouraged to stop by and write the name of a loved one who passed this year on one of the snowflakes.  I love that this tree is so interactive and special.  I wrote down two names of special people who passed away in 2017.

The boys and I enjoyed the Town of Cary Tree Lighting.  There was a fun Variety Show beforehand that featured lots of musical talents of students from local Cary schools.   We loved the Cary High School A Capella Ensemble, Green Eggs and Jam.  They did a really funny Christmas music rendition.  Some of the Town of Cary Elected Officials were there and helped to light the Tree with the Home Town Spirit Award Winner, Ralph Ashworth.
