30th Holiday Festival Will Continue Important Fundraising Efforts For NYFS This holiday season will mark the 30th time that a Holiday Festival will benefit Newtown Youth & Family Services. The 2015 Newtown Holiday Festival will be presented Sunday, December 6, from 11 am until 4 pm. The festival will include ballet performances, trolley tours, a gingerbread house contest, the Festival of Trees, visits with Mrs Claus and Frozen-themed children’s events. The Jingle Bell Jam, which debuted last year on the eve of the Holiday Festival, is also scheduled to return, on December 5. Additional events will be announced as the festival date approaches. One of the most popular events of the Holiday Festival is the walking tour of privately owned homes. Hour Tour Co-Chairs Brid Craddock and Kathy McLeary have arranged for six homes to be on the tour. All of this year’s houses are on Main Street; most festival events will be within Edmond Town Hall, at 45 Main Street. The Holiday Festival raises money primarily through the tickets sold which provide entry to its events. 2015 Holiday Festival tickets are $25 for a family four-pack (two adults and two children), $10 for adults, and $5 for children (with a $10 maximum for children). Tickets will be sold at Newtown Savings Bank branches in Newtown and Brookfield, and at the NYFS office, 15 Berkshire Road in Newtown. They will also be sold on the day of the festival. NYFS is licensed by the Department of Children & Families as an outpatient clinic for children, and by the Department of Public Health as a psychiatric outpatient clinic for adults and as a facility for the care or treatment of substance abuse or dependent persons. It is accredited by the Council on Accreditation. For additional information about NYFS or to volunteer in any capacity for the Holiday Festival, contact Matt Ariniello at 203-270-4335 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
