Algonquin, IL (November 17, 2015) -- CENTURY 21 Affiliated’s Algonquin office will be participating in the annual Festival of Trees on December 4, 2015. The theme for CENTURY 21 Affiliated’s tree is Thank You For Serving and will be decorated with pictures of military men in women in uniform as a special tribute to those who serve the United States Military.
A lighting ceremony will be led by Santa and Mrs. Claus at 6:00 p.m. at the Lake in the Hills Village Hall. Following the tree lighting, spectators can cast their vote for their favorite tree by placing non-perishable food and household items in the bins located inside Village Hall. All items collected at the event will be donated to local food pantries.
“As realtors we believe that it is important to give back to our community,” said Stephanie Burrows, broker agent at CENTURY 21 Affiliated’s Algonquin office. “We realize how fortunate we are and we want to be able to help those in need. The food drive will allow us to collect food from our families, friends and clients and all donations will stay local.”
Within the Algonquin office there are seven agents that are certified Military Relocation Professionals. Managing Broker Kathleen Ricketts is also an instructor for the Real Estate Buyer Council and teaches the Military Relocation Professionals class so that other agents may support local Veterans.
"With Illinois being the second largest Veteran populated state, we are proud to honor those who have served our great country,” said Ricketts. “This is a great way to show our appreciation."
Please email photos of military members with name and rank to firstname.lastname@example.org to see them featured on the CENTURY 21 Affiliated’s Thank You For Serving tree.
