Compass Regional Hospice’s Festival of Trees will be hosted December 6th, 7th, and 8th at Bill and Gail Towers’ Towers Family Historical Museum, 26299 Sennett Road, Denton. The museum began as display of their collection of John Deere tractors, but has grown to showcase the agricultural history in Caroline County, and the past businessmen in the area.All proceeds will benefit hospice and grief support services in Caroline County provided by Compass Regional Hospice, the sole provider in Caroline County.

“This will be our third year hosting the Festival of Trees,” said Bill Towers, owner of the Towers Family Historical Museum in Denton. “We got involved in 2015 when our church held a bluegrass festival to benefit Caroline Hospice. Hospice is a very vital part of our community, not only for our loved ones in their final days, but also as a support for the family after their loss.The Festival of Trees is a great way to show your support by either sponsoring a tree, by bidding on one of the trees, or by just coming and enjoying the beauty of this season.”

The event will kick off with the Preview Party, a ticketed event, on December 6th from 6 to 9 p.m. $40 per person includes beer, wine, and heavy hors d’oeurves provided by Joann Redden, formerly of The Lily Pad Café. Guests will have first access to the tree bidding opportunities, and hear agency updates including exciting plans for Caroline County.

Trees will again be available for viewing from 12 to 6 p.m. Saturday, December 7th, with music from the Sonshine Band, and a special appearance from Santa. The viewing continues December 8th from 12 to 5 p.m. Sunday, and bidding concludes at 5 p.m.

Compass Regional Hospice is looking for sponsors for the event, as well as tree decorators and bidders. For tickets or more information visit or contact Kenda Leagerat 443-262-4106 or
