Curtis "Spot" Ward Memorial Fund

      The Partners, Managers and Employees of Happy Holiday Christmas Trees are honored to announce the establishment of the Curtis "Spot" Ward Memorial Fund.  This Fund and Foundation will raise money for the advancement, promotion and research of the Christmas Tree industry NATIONWIDE.
     Spot was a unique individual in the very diverse industry of growing and selling fresh cut Christmas Trees and greens.  He had friends and relationships throughout the United States and Canada.  He was an individual that everyone liked, respected, looked up to and often went to for advice on many issues the industry has faced over the years.  Spot lived, breathed and slept TREES.  Next to his loving family and his Harley, there was nothing in his life more important than his work and the people he worked with.  The people at Happy Holiday Trees feel there is no better way to honor this great individual, his contribution to the tree industry and his memory.  
     To start the fund Happy Holiday is pledging $25,000 and will match contributions up to $25,000 for each year of its existence.  The goal will be to raise over $100,000 annually with donations from friends and colleagues both within and outside of the Christmas Tree Industry.
     Joanne Ward has been asked to be the Administrator of this foundation and she will be charged with making final decisions on how the funds are to be spent each year.
    The only restrictions will be that all of the funds must be spent for the benefit of the Christmas tree industry that Spot loved so much.
     There will be much more information forthcoming and we hope that all of you will help to make this a worthwhile tribute to a GREAT individual.
