about the festival
Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital (SMH) invites you to participate in the magic of the Festival of Trees from the comfort of your own home. The festival will begin on Monday, November 22nd, and runs for two weeks ending Sunday, December 5th. 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 Rehabilitation Services Center Aquatic Therapy Pool. Donations to the building expansion 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 pm on Sunday, December 5th, streamed live on the Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital Facebook page.
The health and safety of our residents is our top priority. Due to COVID-19, the hospital has strict visitor restrictions in place. This year, the festival will include live stream events, online entertainment, and this interactive website to view all trees, wreaths, and prizes from home.
This year’s online auction will feature fully decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, and prize packages. Bids can be placed online until December 5th at 2:00 pm. Most of the trees in the auction will be on display in the place of business unless specified on the auction page.
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. The prizes this year are spectacular! Enjoy the website!

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.
