Familiar symbols and sounds of the holiday season were aplenty across Barton Field on Dec. 2 as the Fort Gordon community celebrated with the return of its annual Christmas Festival.
It was preceded by a Christmas tree giveaway from Trees for Troops, in which vehicles lined up across the street at the Family Outreach Center. A program of the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation in partnership with FedEx, Trees for Troops provides free, farm-grown Christmas trees to service members and their families in all branches of the military through donations, sponsorships, grants and countless volunteers.
