The sound of jingle bells and horses’ hooves echoed through the crisp November air next door to Highland Green. The occasion was the annual Festival of Trees, a popular holiday event that draws thousands to Highland Green’s neighbour, Kawartha Setters’ Village every year. This year Elm helped support the festive four-day event by sponsoring a seven-foot tall treefor a charity auction. Local volunteer decorators created a sparkling ode to winter owls. Highland Green has just opened a decorated new model home. Elm is currently constructing the private enclave of freehold bungalows in the village of Bobcaygeon in the Kawarthas.
