Access II in Gallatin will kick off the holiday season Friday afternoon (Nov 30th) with the 2nd annual Festival of Trees.  Spokesperson Licha Kelley-King says everyone is invited to come out and support the local cause.

“Have a carriage ride, do some of the pictures with Santa,” she encourages, “some things cost, some things do not.”

Attendees will also have the chance to purchase a variety of decorated Christmas trees in the silent auction.

“There’s a jewel hidden on one of the arrangements,” she says, “we don’t know which one actually has the jewel in it so not only will people be getting a tree but they’ll also be getting a jewel, a gemstone.”

Proceeds from the Friday night gathering go toward the non-residential care center.

“We deal with people with disabilities from birth to death, so we deal with all ages for different things.”

The festivities get underway at 5 o’clock.

Access II provides training for people with disabilities to help them gain skills that will enable them to live more independently.
