WEYBURN – The Young Fellows Club of Weyburn received a shipment of 440 fir trees on Monday morning, and are preparing to open the Christmas tree lot on Saturday, Nov. 25.
The lot is located at the Young Fellows shack behind the Co-op food store on Second Street, and will be open until Dec. 23 with one of the club’s biggest yearly fundraiser projects.
The tree lot includes 330 balsam firs, and 110 Fraser firs, supplied by Mountain View Christmas Trees based in Okotoks, Alta.
The range of sizes includes five to 10 feet for the balsams, with only a handful of trees over eight feet, and the Frasers range from six to eight feet high.
A special treat this year will be Christmas photos on Saturday, Dec. 2, with photography by Sherry Lynn at the tree lot.
There will be some tree stands and bags available for those who want them.
The tree lot is open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; on Sundays from noon to 6 p.m., and on weekdays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The Christmas tree pickup will be on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2024.
All proceeds from the project will stay in Weyburn, to support the many projects of the Young Fellows Club.
