Park and Rec Xmas Tree Sale, on Now!

In Breaking, Culture Bluffs, Open Season on November 30, 2011 at 4:28 pm

P&R prez Art Melendez wants to sell you a Fraser fir or ten.

Come one, come all, and get the best tree deal in the county. Save money on gas and know that what you do spend is going to support Elberta’s beautification and recreation initiatives. Park and Rec is selling Fraser firs and Scotch pine trees between the post office and Lane Plumbing on M-22. You can’t miss it in the daytime. And it looks quite pretty lit up at night.

Did you know that Park and Rec doesn’t get any money from the Village general fund/your taxes? Park and Rec pays for all its projects through its own fundraising efforts. Projects like the new Dog Park by the community building on First Street, new playground equipment for Tots Park, paint and signage, holiday lights and decorations, and any of the other cool new ideas they’re coming up with to bring good times to the Village.

Park and Rec members and civilians are pulling volunteer sales shifts Monday through Friday from 4 pm to 7 pm and Saturday and Sunday 1 pm to 7 pm. Frazer firs are $35 and Scotch pines are $25. Thanks so much to Russ Mix for donating the use of his lot, to Laura Manville for coming up with this awesome idea, to Jen Wilkins for the signage, and, as usual, to Ken Bonney for knowing where to get the trees and, well, pretty much everything else that was needed. Sale goes until they’re gone. Get ’em while they’re cold and green!
