The Festival of Trees took place in Des Moines November 20-26 and a group of ambitious Beaver elves decorated several trees for the event which supports Blank Children's Hospital.   

Thank you to Gentry (Gillespie) Smith SL'99, Kelsey (Dorale) Uhl SL'03, Jen (Dorale) Puttmann SL'06, Ben Puttmann SL'05, Sarah Steinkamp SL'01, Greg Bell SL'01, Audrey (Pearson) Bell SL'02, Ariane (Sundean) Criger SL'02 and Kevin Hoyt SL'90 and children for your work on this special project! 

The Mathisen family, Tom SL'05, Jessica (Larson) SL'04 and their children Madelyn, Hadley & Ella purchased the small Beaver Tree and are enjoying their new BVU gear. The girls are already sporting their new Beaver key chains on their school backpacks. Thanks to Tom and Jessica for their school spirit and generous support of Blank Children's Hospital!
