Tomorrow is Black Friday, Sunbury’s Christmas on the Square is a heartbeat away and Christmas is just around the corner. It’s time to start thinking about buying this year’s Christmas tree at the Sunbury Lions Club Tree Sale on the north side of the square, where tree shoppers can select Canaan Fir, White Pine and Scotch Pine, all reasonably priced in sizes ranging from 6 to 10 feet.
As the holiday season approaches, it’s important to buy local where your dollars go for a worthy cause, helping friends and neighbors during these uncertain times; and, as always, profits from the Sunbury Lions Christmas Tree Sale go to Big Walnut Friends Who Share.
The Lions will start selling Christmas trees this coming Saturday, November 24, at 10 a.m., so stop at the Lions shelter on the square for a chat with a friendly Lion and select a tree.
Sunbury Lions will be on site to help you select and load your Christmas tree Monday through Friday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. until all trees are sold or Christmas Eve.
Can’t get there when the Lions are open for business? No problemo, as Arnie would say. All trees are tagged. Select a tree, pay at Molly’s Flowers or Evans Insurance, and take your tree home.
There are trees to fit any space, taste, and pocket book:
• White Pine 6–9 ft $20,
• Canaan Fir 6–8 ft $25 to $40
• Canaan Fir 8–9 ft $50
• Canaan Fir 9–10 ft $60
• Douglass Fir 6–9 ft $25
And remember … it’s a Big Walnut tradition: Buy local, and spend your money where it counts, at the Sunbury Lions Club Christmas Tree Sale.
