Mission Festival of Trees wraps up Saturday

Event concludes with reading of A Child’s Christmas in Wales at All Saints Anglican Church

The seventh annual Mission Festival of Trees concludes with a dramatic reading of the classic A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas at All Saints Anglican Church Hall (Second Avenue and James Street) on Saturday Dec. 14.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the reading begins at 7 p.m.

Thomas was a Welsh poet known for his poem “Do not go gentle into that good night.”

This Christmas story describes his boyhood experience of Christmas in Wales.

It takes us through a typical Christmas Eve, describing the snow and snowball fights and boyish adventures he experienced while waiting for the main event of Christmas with its presents and food and candy and family; when life was relatively simpler.

The reading will be set in a coffee-house style and will include tea, coffee, and light refreshments. Admission at the door is by donation of cash or a non-perishable food item for the Mission Christmas Bureau.

Bring the whole family to this special reading.
