Dear Friends:

We wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Every Christmas Torrance Memorial Medical Center, our local hospital, has their Festival of Trees, a fund raiser for which various donors decorate a tree placed on display at the Festival for a week and is then auctioned off.

Our annual tree is a memorial to Sue Carr, a wonderful employee who passed away two years ago at a far too early age. The Festival of Trees was a passion of hers. It is a pleasure to continue her passion.

Here is our 2010 tree. Our 2009 tree was decorated with toys and bought by a doctor for the hospital emergency department so kids could take a toy!

This year’s tree is a Tribute to Disney and also has a child orientation, so perhaps the same doctor will buy it!

All our best to you for 2011.

 PS – Just heard the 2010 tree was bought for $1500! Sue would be quite pleased. Hats off to Team Mockett who did a great job creating this fantastic tree!
