Would you like to experience the fragrant holiday scent of evergreen and the look and feel of a real tree this year?

Then the Greenville Rotarians have just what you need. The club has launched its annual Rotary Christmas Tree Sale.

“These are really nice, high-quality trees, really better than what you would find at the lots in Montgomery,” said Rotary president Arlene Davis.

“We’ve been doing this for at least 15 years and it’s just become a real holiday tradition here in the city,” said Rotarian Bobby Rogers. “And they are really pretty trees.”

The lovely Douglas firs range in height from 6 feet to 8 feet, and free local delivery is available.

The trees are $45 each, and the funds go to support some very worthwhile local charities, said Davis.

“The monies we raise through the tree sale benefit many local groups and projects, including the Boy and Girl Scouts, Safe Harbor, and the Greenville-Butler County Public Library,” Davis said.

Local campers also enjoy visits to Camp ASCCA, another project supported through the tree sales.

One of the projects the club members enjoy the most, says Davis, is providing dictionaries to every third grade student in Butler County. The Rotarians visit the classrooms to hand out the books to the students.

“It feels good to know not one child shall leave third grade without a Webster’s Dictionary in their hands,” Davis said.

The trees should be delivered to Greenville on Thursday, December 3.
