Local charities were the big winners in the Rotary Club of Davidson’s 3rd annual Christmas Tree Village on the Town Green during Christmas in Davidson. Festival goers voting with their donations picked the ShakinIt4Fun tree as their favorite, with donations going to Levine Children’s Hospital. Altogether, the event raised more than $1,400, nearly three times the 2012 total, according to the club.
Other winners were: Tribute to the Troops, sponsored by Deal Machine Shop; and Davidson Green School, sponsored by Fifth Third Bank. The majority of the proceeds will go to Ada Jenkins Center’s Free Medical Clinic renovation, but other local non-profits and schools will benefit as festival-goers vote on their favorite trees.

This year, thanks to the efforts of more than 50 volunteers, Christmas in Davidson will be a little bit “greener.” Student volunteers and Green Davidson members are committed to helping visitors keep recyclables out of the landfill by offering numerous recycling stations at this year’s event.
“A thriving recycling system conserves natural resources,” said Charlene Minor, founder of Green Davidson. ”Acknowledging that recycling keeps materials out of landfills, where they can contaminate groundwater systems and generate greenhouse gases, is the first step to educating the community of the importance of recycling. If each resident committed to reduce, reuse, and recycle, a significant portion of landfill waste would be eliminated.” Read the full story

One of the many fundraisers going on at this year’s Christmas in Davidson festival will be a bake sale organized by two Community School of Davidson sixth graders who wanted to help a family from their church whose 2-year-old son, Declan Fitzgerald, was recently diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease.
Bailey Settar and Emma Karant, both of Davidson, will be offering home-baked items for a donation in a fundraiser they’re calling “Declan’s Dream.” All proceeds will go directly to Declan’s care. Read the full story
