Preparing for TreeFest
Press Enterprise/Karen Vibert-Kennedy

Joseph DeFeo, left, and James Stuart, along with about 30 of their Alpha Tau Omega brothers, cut the ends of trees at the Caldwell Consistory in Bloomsburg on Saturday for the upcoming annual TreeFest. One hundred and twenty trees donated by 15 local vendors were delivered on Saturday to be set up for the event. It runs Nov. 23-25, and Nov. 30 to Dec. 2. The event is celebrating its 30th year. The trees will be trimmed by local community groups and donated to  families in need at the conclusion of the event.
