Join SCPA in decorating its holiday tree as part of the Stony Brook Village Holiday Tree Competition. Ours is Tree #103 in Harbor Crescent (right near the bakery). Tree decoration starts at 11; the village holiday festivities begin at 12pm.

Our theme this year is "Fragile" and will feature a theme of suicide awareness and prevention with supportive quotes provided by our members. We will be highlighting the new 9-8-8 number and SCPA resources. We like to do this as a service to the community (and a great way to let the public know about SCPA!). 

The SCPA Board is looking to gather quotes or words of encouragement for someone struggling of 25-50 words to use in the decorations. Please use this Google Form to submit your tip to be hung on the tree (please note: tips will not be attributed to individual practitioners; we have a limit of 24 tips that can be accepted). The rest of the tree will be decorated with teal and purple accoutrements and clear icicles and snowflakes to show that we are all sometimes "fragile."

Following the tree decoration, there will be a short and easy hike through Avalon Park, one of the gems of Stony Brook near the harbor and pond. It is a beautiful and easy walk.

Parking is available in front of the village, and there is more in the back behind the shops.
