The 2018 Fantasy of Trees closed with its recipient celebration evening.  Representatives from the recipient charities along with sponsors, volunteers, decorators/designers, town representatives and other participants got together at the Grimsby Museum for a meet and greet, and cheque presentation.  
We were pleased to have Sam Oosterhoff with us, along with Doug Nielsen, our 2018 Santa. We took the opportunity to showcase our  red scarf campaign.  This is in honour of the Festival’s founder Bob Gowans, who with his wife Lois, started the Fantasy of Trees 20 years ago, in 1999.
