Brookfield Zoo Community Tree Trim

November 24, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


In the CAFFA tradition, we will participate in the Community Tree Trim at Brookfield Zoo. The event coincides with National Adoption Awareness Month and provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the faces of adoption. Please join your CAFFA Board Members to decorate our tree with pictures of our beautiful families, and enjoy kinship in the adoptive community. Hot beverages and refreshments will be served.

When: Sunday, November 24th , 2:00-3:30pm Feel free to come early or stay late,so that you may stroll around one of the finest zoos in the country!

Tree Location: East Mall, #115

Cost: CAFFA Event – free; however, Zoo admission rates apply Check our website for information on free admission and parking passes

Deadlines: To attend event – register by November 20th

To ensure your pictures will be included, please send by snail mail, email, or upload via our website by November 17th

Please see our website for specific details

Event: You do not have to attend to submit a photo, but we do hope you will join us for this festive event!

You are welcome to bring your ornaments / pictures to the event, or at anytime after the tree has been set up as well (the trees will be on display until the end of the year). If you choose to bring your own picture ornaments, please be sure to laminate them, or coat them with durable clear packing tape, so that they withstand the Chicago winter! We also encourage you to bring ornaments that represent your family—whether cultural or adoption related. They do need to be eco-friendly and, as a reminder, we will not be able to return them. We hope to see all of our families represented!
