about the festival

SMH Festival Of Trees

Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital (SMH) invites you to participate in the magic of the Festival of Trees. The festival opens Friday, December 1st, and runs for nine days ending Saturday, December 9th. The Festival of Trees is a holiday-themed event with proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets and an online auction going toward Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital’s NEW X-ray and Fluoroscopy imaging equipment. Donations to the annual fund help deliver close-to-home quality healthcare and specialty services to our rural residents. The event’s focal point is the display and sale of spectacular holiday trees, wreaths, gift certificates, getaways, merchandise, and more donated by businesses and community groups. The raffle drawing will be at 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 9th, streamed live on the Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital Facebook page.

The festival will include in-person viewing, entertainment, Family Day, and this interactive website to view all trees, wreaths, and prizes from home.

This year’s online auction will feature fully decorated Christmas trees, getaways, and prize packages. Bids will open on November 20th and can be placed online until December 9th at 2:00 p.m.

What makes the Festival of Trees so special? One reason is the fantastic support and generosity we receive from our businesses and the entire community. An event like this would not be possible without all of our sponsors.  Enjoy the website!

5 out of 5 stars

The care that was provided by The nurses (Cindy, Felicia Ruth) and staff was exceptional. The entire staff was very friendly and made you feel welcome. We received a call from Felicia the next day to check on my husband to check his pain level and do a follow up. The surgery area from check in to check out was well organized, clean, and up to date. Thank you to all of you for what you do so well and everything beyond your normal duties.
