real christmas trees

NORFOLK — The Norfolk Lions Club is in full swing with its annual Christmas tree and wreath sale on the downtown lot next to the Dunkin Donuts on Main Street.

Selling hours are weekdays from 3 to 9 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The Lions will trim the bottom of trees, wrap them and secure them to vehicles, although pickup trucks are appreciated.

Also for sale are tree bags and tree life preservative.

Cash and checks made out to the Norfolk Lions Club are accepted, but not credit cards.

All proceeds go back into the community and to various Lions charities such as blindness and diabetes prevention.

There is also a collection bin at the tree lot for “Coats 4 Kids.” Men’s, women’s and children’s coats in good condition are needed and will be dry-cleaned by Anton’s Cleaners. They will be given to those in need in the community.

Also, nonperishable food donations will be collected for the Norfolk Food Pantry.

Again this year, the Boy Scouts of Norfolk will be offering a tree pickup service after the holidays. For $10, the Scouts will pick up a tree at a house in town and bring it to the transfer station for recycling. You can register for the service when buying a tree.
