Christmas trees here!


Did you ever wonder how they get Christmas trees all wrapped up in the netting that protects them until you get them into your home? Pictured above, members of the Avalon Volunteer Fire Company package a tree on its way to a local home. The firefighters are selling Christmas trees to raise money, and have a wide variety of types and sizes in the lot across from the fire hall on New Brighton Road. The lot is open weekday evenings and all day on Saturday and Sunday through Dec. 24. Delivery to North Boroughs homes is available for free or a nominal charge.
