Shelton holiday event boosts volunteer fire company

Delores Moore of Shelton, above, participates in the raffle at the Echo Hose Hook & Ladder Company’s fifth annual Festival of Trees at Apple Rehab Shelton Lakes.

Visitors could view decorated artificial trees and wreaths while children could get their photos taken with Santa. There also were refreshments and a bake sale. The event raises money for the volunteer fire company.
