BEAVER, W.V. (LOOTPRESS) – The Beaver Lion’s Club is currently hosting its annual Christmas Tree sale. John Hawse, current director and past president of the club, says they have more than 100 trees ranging from White Pine to Spruce and Fir.
According to Hawse, this is one of the Lion’s Club’s four major fundraisers. The primary goal is to raise money to purchase glasses from children and seniors, eye examinations and scholarships for local high school students.
Last year the club sold nearly 150 trees and even donated a handful to those in need- a service they plan to offer again this year.
“We want to help wherever there’s a need. That is the primary reason,” he said. “The money stays here in the community.”
Hawes also believes customers will be pleased with this year’s selection, stating that they are the best looking and cheapest trees around.
“The trees we harvested this year are better than anybody else’s you’ll see,” he stated. “If you take a look around and look at our trees compared to the others, you can tell a difference.”
Lion’s Club members will be set up at the Beaver clubhouse on Tiger Lane each day until the trees are sold. Hawes says members are there from midday to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
Trees are $45, and brooms and tree stands will also be available for purchase.
