The Lions are back at it again! This year, they have 200 Christmas trees to sell at the Ferguson Forest Centre, and they go fast. The trees come from Pine Needle Farm in Peterborough, who share seeds with the Forest Centre.
This past Saturday, Grant Leeder and Robert Sentner, were there to officially open the gates to the anticipated line ups they expect to see throughout the next few weeks. All money raised goes directly back into our community to help support different non-profit groups.
Trees will be available (while supplies last) from 9 am to 5 pm on weekends and from 10 am to 5 pm on weekdays. Trees are $60.00 this year, and, along with the trees, they are also selling (on behalf of the Forest Centre) ornamental Cedar and Pine, boughs, Red Dogwood, and White Birch logs to assist in making your home, inside and out, as decorative as possible, all locally sourced from our own Forest Centre.
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, first with the launch of an amazing Santa Claus parade, which drew the biggest crowds ever in Kemptville, department stores now playing Christmas music, the Salvation Army ringing their Christmas bells, and now with our Lions Club selling their trees. The Christmas season has officially begun!
Thank you to all Lions and to the staff at the Ferguson Forest Centre for donating your time and effort to bring the Christmas Spirit into our community.
