Westborough Civic Club holds annual tree sale

Westborough Civic Club President Steve Hart making the first sale of the season to regular customer Selectman Bruce Tretter.

Westborough – Westborough Civic Club’s annual tree, wreath and roping sale has experienced a great start over the past two weeks. With the first delivery of over 700 trees and 500 wreaths arriving in readiness for the Thanksgiving weekend the Club’s volunteer members have found themselves busy welcoming customers both old and new – and not only from the town itself. Club president Walter Leslie reflected on just how many folks making a purchase arrive from surrounding communities and across the Metrowest area.

”It seems that folks have not only heard about the great value we give but also the wide range of trees we have for sale, from table-toppers right up to 13ft cathedrals. Recent news items about a possible tree shortage may be true elsewhere but we have a great relationship with our supplier and were pleased to receive a further delivery this last weekend to replenish stocks. We actually sell about 1,500 trees in any year so there’s normally a tree to suit everyone’s taste” said Leslie.

Located on Rte. 30 at111 East Main Street (Hastings School) the lot is open weekdays 3:30-9.00 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. through until Monday, Dec. 24.  As always, all profits made are donated back to a range of community causes.
