‘TIS THE SEASON FOR CHRISTMAS TREE SALES
The 22nd Annual Christmas Tree Sale, sponsored by the Men’s Club, has begun! There is a wide variety of trees and wreaths available for your holiday décor needs. All proceeds benefit the parish and school. Help is needed, and volunteering with tree sales qualifies for school family commitment hours. Workers staff the tree lot in shifts during the weekday evening hours and weekends. Make it a family affair, or get together with a group ministry, some fantasy football buddies or margarita mamas. Your welcoming smile, sales talent and holiday cheer are needed. Grab your long johns, get your mittens and get out there to help at one of our most successful annual fundraisers. Come see for yourself and be part of the fun!
