One Tree Wholistic Learning Center extends an invitation to all community members to attend this festival of light in celebration of culture and community.

The afternoon will include storytelling, arts and crafts, music, food, and a presentation of six cultural holidays—each incorporating the symbolism of light: Eid and Ramadan (Islam), Christmas (Christianity), Kwanzaa (African American / Pan-African heritage), Hanukkah (Judaism), Diwali (Hinduism), and Winter Solstice (Secular). There will be a silent auction featuring a variety of items from local businesses to raise funds for One Tree.

One Tree Wholistic Learning Center promotes social change within institutions and communities through education and grassroots organizing rooted in peace, pluralism, and partnership. One Tree Wholistic Learning Center operates the Roots and Fruits cross-cultural preschool in South Portland, as well as the Community Branches Project and the Seeds Institute.
