One of the most personal experiences for a family is the birth of a baby. And families are comforted knowing that care at Winneshiek Medical Center offers new technology - delivered with a soft touch. With over 300 babies being born each year at Winneshiek Medical Center, proceeds from this year's Foundation fund raising events have been dedicated to the purchase of two fetal/maternal monitors for the Winneshiek Medical Center Obstetrics Department.
One of these fund raising events, the annual Festival of Trees Holiday Home Tours, has been re-vamped into a holiday décor extravaganza featuring local businesses. The homes of Keith & Amy Bruening, Dave & Kris Kratz, Fred & Suzie Bauer and Stan & Mary Jo Finholt will be showcased in this event, giving tour-goers the opportunity to be inspired by timeless décor and the newest trends in holiday decorating.
Chartered coaches, sponsored by Hawkeye Stages, will provide transportation to the featured homes, which will be decorated with merchandise from: Ace Kitchen Place, Country Garden, Happiness Is, Wall to Wall, Agora Arts, Decorah Furniture, Latham Furniture, Wishing Well, Aspen Alley, Decorah Greenhouse and Momentos. Many items displayed in the homes will be available for purchase, with many of the unique area shops offering storewide specials throughout the weekend.
