A Message from our 2017 Chair
This year we will celebrate our 17th year for Symphony of Trees. Our events will be held at the Armory Arts & Events Center in Napoleon, Ohio. Due to support and contributions, from donors like yourself, we were able to donate over $20,000.00 to each of the three benefiting agencies that our Symphony of Trees Board selected for 2017. Those agencies include the Henry County Hospital, the Northwest Ohio Court Appointed Special Advocate (“CASA”)/Guardian ad Litem (“GAL”) Program, and the Center for Child and Family Advocacy, benefiting the children of Northwest Ohio.
These agencies, through the money that the Symphony has been able to donate, are able to provide services and resources to children within our community. Some specific examples include literacy and learning activities through the Imagination Library and Born Learning Service through the Henry County Hospital, Legal advocate services for children within the court system through CASA, and child abuse treatment services through the Center for Child & Family Advocacy. These agencies continue to positively impact the children in our community, and the Symphony is honored to help.
The Symphony of Trees’ committees are now busy planning for 2017, “Over the River and Through the Woods.” Please mark your calendar and plan to join us this year’s events, which include:
- Wednesday, November 15, 2017 – Children’s Activities and open house for the public with the Gift Shop, the Sweet Shop and the Silent Auction area opening at 3 pm.
- Thursday, November 16, 2017 – Victorian Tea and Business after Hours/Volunteer Appreciation (in conjunction with the Henry County Chamber of Commerce)
- Friday, November 17, 2017 – Community Soup & Salad Luncheon and Tailgate in the Trees
- Saturday, November 18, 2017 – Tapestry of Tables and Symphony Gala
- Sunday, November 19, 2017 – Sunday Brunch and Children’s Pajama Party
The Symphony Gift Shop, Sweet Shop, and Silent Auction areas will all be open to the public throughout all of the events. The Gift Shop provides holiday gifts and home décor that everyone is sure to love, while the Sweet Shop features homemade treats including cheese balls, noodles, and all of your favorite sweets. The Silent Auction allows participants another opportunity to benefit the children of this area.

Symphony of Trees would not be possible without you, the donors, as well as the many volunteers. We appreciate your continued support and hope that you will come “Over the River and Through the Woods” with a donation in 2017.
Very truly yours,
2017 Symphony Chair
