Lions Club selling Christmas trees for 49th year

Published 11:42pm Friday, December 6, 2013

For 48 years, the Edwardsburg Lions Club has sold Christmas trees to the community.

This year will be no different.

The Lions Club has set up its trees in the H&R Block parking lot on US-12.

Club members and some Leos helped unload the semi, which was full of evergreen trees. Scotch and White pines, along with Frasier Fir are available in a variety of sizes.

“The quality of the Christmas trees are exceptional and the Lions Club is proud to offer live Christmas trees to our community,” Lions Club President Tanda Stiffler said. “This is one of the largest fundraisers the club takes on to do the many projects offered to the community such as helping with eyeglasses, appointments, white canes, leader dogs, handicap ramps, community food pantry and honoring two graduating Edwardsburg High School students with scholarships.”

The Lions Club is also selling Michigan’s Pure Maple Syrup as a fundraiser.

Syrup can be purchased at the Christmas tree lot or by contacting any Lions Club member. Syrup is available in pints or quarts.
