Optimist Club Opens Christmas Tree Lots

Posted: Updated:

If you need a Christmas tree this year we have a way for you to spruce up your holiday decor and help the community at the same time.
The Optimist Club kicked off their annual  Christmas tree lot fundraiser.
They have had a great turnout for the past two years, bringing in close to $10,000.
The event helps the organization provide much needed scholarships and much more for young people in the community.
Optimist Club member Bill Presson says, "The Optimist Club is of course a service organization, and the money we make mainly goes to the Girls and Boys Club. Of course there are other organizations we help and Campfire is our second biggest organization but mainly its the Girls and Boys Club.
The hours of operation are from 12:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., 7 days a week.
You can find this lot on the corner of Southwest Parkway and Taft.
The Optimist Club brings in their trees from Seattle so they are nice and plush.
