RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild held it’s annual Christmas Tea and Tree Raffle on Dec. 11 at the Rancho Santa Fe Library. The library was chock full of books and children, all eager to win the Christmas tree of their choice.
Small decorative trees were donated to be raffled off. The trees were cleverly put together and were a feast for the eye. Boys, in particular, seemed to be stuffing the box with raffle tickets hoping to win the “Star Wars Tree.” Girls appeared to gravitate toward a tall pink tree while football fans wanted the “Charger Tree.”
After indulging in cookies and soft drinks, everyone settled into the children’s corner, with seats for about 100 people. Vivien U, president of the Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild, welcomed everyone and got right to the tree raffle.
Proceeds from the raffle help support programs provided by the Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild, programs which primarily benefit children in the community. The guild was established in 1963 by a group of Rancho Santa Fe residents who saw a need to enhance library services beyond anything the county’s funds could provide.
The library will be closed on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, and New Year’s Day, Jan. 1.
