In line with American Training’s core value of Community & Giving Back, the Methuen Festival of Trees has become a good steward in the keeping of our heritage within the community. Born out of necessity and goodwill around the holidays in 1994, volunteers came together to hold a Christmas fundraiser featuring fully decorated Christmas Trees to raise funds for the restoration of the Tenney Gate House. The Methuen Festival of Trees, 25 years later, is now one of the largest fundraising events of its kind in New England and the country! Hosting over 30,000 people from over 388 cities and towns in Massachusetts each year. The money raised from this is used to fund the restoration of the historical monuments and landmarks within the community, by in which preserving the very heritage that makes Methuen and its surrounding cities and towns unique.
