Giving Tree Village

Senior Community Connections volunteers are thrilled to present this year's tree in Rotary of Davidson's annual Giving Tree Village. SCC's theme is "Golden Memories." Members had the opportunity to share their favorite stories or what they love about SCC. We hope you'll get the chance to stroll the tree village at the Davidson Green and read some of the memory cards that will be placed on our tree. Volunteers also painted pine cones together to match with our "golden" theme.


We also have a special memorial addition to the tree, as we remember those special members we lost this year.


Thank you to the volunteers who helped plan, create, and execute a meaningful and inclusive tree that we hope represents and honors our members, past and present.


Voting begins Thursday November 30th at 5pm in conjunction with Christmas in Davidson and ends on Sunday December 3rd! When it is time to vote, you can visit the link or QR code below. Please share with your friends an family!
