Thank you to the

60 volunteers who gave their time and energy to staff the 23 trucks that were used to deliver 142 decorated trees that were sold at the 2012 Holiday Tree Festival in support of Akron Children's Hospital.

Among the volunteers were 20 Cuyahoga Falls firefighters, two Norton firefighters, five Akron firefighters, and 16 retired Akron and Cuyahoga Falls firefighters. Additionally, thank you to the Akron-area businesses that donated the use of their trucks and personnel.

Your generous support provided a successful conclusion to the 31st Annual Holiday Tree Festival, which generates essential support for burn victims and sick children.

Rick Schrop,

Cuyahoga Falls
