Celebrate our Community at Pearl Buck’s Festival of Trees

November 16, 2022 - January 8, 2023

Come experience the splendor and excitement of the season at the Pearl S. Buck House’s annual Festival of Trees!

The Village Improvement Association of Doylestown is again adding our own decorated tree to the displays.

This year we are celebrating the many activities of the VIA and the upcoming 100th Anniversary of Doylestown Hospital, the tiny 8-bed maternity hospital we started in 1923 that . . . GREW!

(Scroll down on the Pearl Buck page to see the Festival of Trees’ tour times and instructions.)

The VIA tree is adorned with miniature furniture and little houses, representing our annual Bucks County Designer House & Gardens.  Poinsettia, festive yellow ribbons, and lights bring your attention to the VIA’s continuing work supporting our communities. The pictures near the tree explain more about the VIA and show early VIA members marching in Doylestown’s 1912 parade. In 2022, we continue the VIA’s work to maintain Doylestown Hospital as the area’s premier community healthcare resource. We provide scholarships for local youth and women reentering the job market. We support local veterans and military causes. And we continue to care for and improve the wonderful James-Lorah Memorial Home (deeded to the VIA by charter VIA member, Miss Sarah James, one of the 1912 marchers). And we have fun doing it!

The annual VIA addition to the Pearl Buck Festival of Trees is designed and created by the VIA’s Floral Arts Committee. Shown below are members (L-R) Ginny Riedley, Mary C. Dischinger, Louanne McConnell, and Grace Carr. The second picture shows Louanne McConnell and Mary C. Dischinger.
