The Village Parks and Recreation Commission will for the third year in a row sell fabulous Christmas trees from Needlefast Everygreens as a fundraiser for P&R projects! This year the sale will be held in the Farmers’ Market Park Pavilion, with festive lights, excellent parking, possibly cocoa, and a bit more shelter from the elements. Please plan to support our local team of parks volunteers with your purchase of a Frazer fir or blue spruce, $30 and $25 respectively. All proceeds go toward Parks and Recreation projects such as a bench for the Elberta Dunes South lookout, playground and exercise equipment maintenance, and perhaps a revival of the Mushy Peach Film Fest? If you’d like to moonlight as a conifer trader, please call Jennifer Wilkins at 231-651-0798. Sale begins Black Friday, November 29, from 1 pm to 5 pm, and continues Thursdays and Fridays 5 pm to 7 pm and Saturdays and Sundays 1 pm to 5 pm, until the trees are gone or Christmas comes.—Emily Votruba

  1. Hey Emily, Should it be O’Tannenbaum not O’Tannerbaum?

    • I admit it’s a very weird joke. It should be O, Tannenbaum. But I love Don Tanner and he’s from Elberta, so I made it O, Tannerbaum. I hope no one else notices. 🙂
