2017 Festival of Trees It was a fabulous November weekend at the Mill Market Square Machine Shop for the Lung Association’s 19th annual Festival of Trees.  The location was transformed into a winter wonderland of trees and wreaths. Many people deem this to be the beginning of the Christmas season. Its success is due in large part to all the RTO/ERO members, their spouses and friends who continue to support this event annually. Thank you to all the 101 RTO/ERO members who volunteered their time and enjoyed it immensely. The Lung Association - Algoma District appreciates their dedication and Service to Others. The appreciation of RTO/ERO by the people in our community has been greatly enhanced by your efforts.
