Truckee Christmas tree sales begin next weekend

Staff report

Jeff Swigard and his son Bennett, Blair Davison, and Rick Maddalena were among 25 people working with the Truckee Optimist Club to cut trees for this year's sale.

The Truckee Optimist Club will once again be selling Christmas Trees this holiday season.

There will be a large selection of locally cut Red firs (silver tips), as well as Noble, Nordman and Grand fir trees shipped from the club's grower in Oregon.

Tree sales will begin Saturday, Nov. 29, and will conclude Tuesday, Dec. 23 (or once the last tree is sold).

The tree lot — at the Truckee Crossroads Shopping Center, at the corner of Highway 89 and Deerfield Drive — will be manned by Truckee Optimist Club members, youth from local schools and teams that benefit from the proceeds, and by other community volunteers.

All profits from tree sales are included in the Truckee Optimist Club annual budget of nearly $50,000, which goes directly to youth activities (both educational and recreational), major scholarships and grants for Truckee youth.
