Christmas Tree Project

Each year MCDF is grateful to the many generous people who are part  of making the Village festive for the holiday season.  Small trees are planted in the community planters and decorated.  In addition, a large community tree is decorated.  Carol Brawley is the project Chairperson.  As with the Spring Flowers, it takes a team to make this possible. 


In 2019, planters and transporters of trees included Jim Halter, John Chiurco, Alan Artzner, Gregg Hellyer,  George Sanders, Kenny Geiger and Tony Smolinsky, all of whom are members of Malvern American Legion Post 375.  The large community tree was donated by Jim Smith of Smith Evergreen Nursery, and Jamie Shoemaker put it up. 


Decorators were Carol Brawley, Beth Meiser, Trish Meiser, Mary Lou Fischer, and Susan Joyce. Also, many families decorated the trees they sponsored.  The large community tree was decorated by Lynn Edwards, Jake Schreffler and his family.
