It was Christmas 2006 when the Abominable Snowman joined some of his other Burl Ives cutout friends at a fundraiser called the Celebration of Trees. This colorful holiday event was sponsored by Island Hospital Foundation and the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce. Cutout characters including Frosty the Snowman were lent by the Burl Ives Family.
Once again this year, the Island Hospital Foundation is hosting a Celebration of Trees fundraising event. Visit the Port of Anacortes warehouse at the north end of Commercial Avenue to see beautifully decorated trees and wreaths. A live auction will be held Saturday evening.
