Emu Plains Lions Sell ‘Real’ Christmas Trees
There has been disappointment, with the announcement that a number of local Christmas tree farms will not be able to provide trees this year.
However, the Lions Club of Emu Plains will be selling ‘real’ Christmas trees on Saturday 14th December, at Lions Park on the Great Western Highway in Emu Plains. The banner announcing the date and above location should be erected by Council about two weeks prior to the sale.
The trees are sourced from Oberon, where the grower advises they are not affected by drought or water restrictions.
Lions have had to marginally increase their selling price to $40 per tree, commensurate with the supplier’s increase.
Lions Coordinator, John Choma said “Selling prices have remained unchanged for the last 3 years, and it is only a modest increase this year in line with the suppliers increase. A comparable tree from some of the ‘supermarket stores’ can retail at double what we are selling them for”.
The estimated drop-off time for the trees is between 6:30am and 7:00am and there will be only 90 trees available, so the Club recommends that you get in early to avoid disappointment!
The proceeds of the Christmas tree sale will enable the Lions Club to make a donation to Ronald McDonald Family Room at Nepean Hospital.
