Get your Christmas trees here!


A little rain did not stop the Knight family of Bellevue -- Charles, Colleen and Snickers -- from finding the perfect Christmas tree for their home at the annual sale held by the Avalon Volunteer Fire Company, where they received expert assistance from firefighter Jerry Lundy. A wide variety of trees in all sizes can be found in the lot across from the fire station on New Brighton Road. The lot is open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 5-9 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. - 9 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. All proceeds benefit the Avalon Volunteer Fire Company.
