Pella — The Marion County Historical Society hosted its annual Festival of  Trees on Nov. 17- 18 at the Historical Village at Marion County Park.  The favorite tree contest was held over the course of the two-day festival.  The top three winning trees were determined by the total amount of cash donations placed in the bucket beside each tree.

We are pleased to announce this year's winners: First Place - VFW Ladies Auxiliary; Second Place -- Knoxville Lion's Club; and Third Place -Shear Designs.

The Festival of Trees committee would like to congratulate these winners and thank all of those who participated in the tree contest and all of those who came out and voted for their favorite tree.  We had a total of 39 trees from groups, businesses and individuals.  The winners of the favorite tree contest receive cash prizes of $25, $15 and $10 respectively.
