A Tree Grows in North Andover

A Tree Grows in North Andover: Smolak Farms’ Christmas Tree Featured at Boston Park Plaza Hotel

BOSTON – The owners and operators of Smolak Farms have created memories for families since 1985, and this year is no different. A Christmas tree that has been nurtured and quietly grown over the last several years at the farm in North Andover has patiently awaited its special day!

This Friday, the tree will be brightly lit at the Park Plaza Hotel in Boston as part of their final night of festivities concluding Blackstone’s of Beacon Hill popular five-year Mystery Ornament Series.

Blackstone’s popular Christmas mystery includes ten mystery ornaments and the publication of an illustrated book, entitled  “The Last Sheppard and Tales of the Tenth Ornament.” Blackstone’s has issued two ornaments every year since 2006, encoded with mystery anagrams. When deciphered, the ornaments will reveal a five-line message of hope for the Holiday season.

The net proceeds from the book have raised over $5,000 for pediatric cancer research at Mass General Hospital for Children Cancer Center (MGHCC).

Hundreds of people from twenty-six states who have participated in the program will be welcomed for a night of entertainment to celebrate a collective achievement that has produced enormous fun and goodwill.

The gift from Michael Smolak of Smolak Farms caps the many wonderful acts of kindness received by Blackstone’s during this project.

CBlackstone’s owners believe in serving the local community, demonstrating their love for Beacon Hill by helping to raise dollars and awareness for the neighborhood institutions through this and other fundraising efforts.
