Do you have a Christmas Tree yet?

If you haven't yet purchased a Christmas Tree, The Optimist Club of Greater Vienna is selling fraser firs in the Giant Food parking lot on Maple Avenue in Vienna.

All the proceeds from this sale go back to the community in the form of college scholarships for seniors, financial assistance to local sports teams for equipment and so forth, awards for the elementary schools and their respective projects, awards for local law enforcement programs, hearing impaired essay contest winner awards and so much more!

All the trees are fraser firs from North Carolina I believe.  They are beautiful.  They each have a hole drilled in the bottom and are placed on spikes on the stands in the lot so you can see the shape of the tree.

The Optimist Club members that are working the tree lot will trim the branches on the tree for you and give the bottom a fresh clip with the chain saw.  A fresh cut will allow the tree to absorb more moisture and you must get that tree in water within an hour of the fresh cut.  Stands with spikes are available to purchase (small and medium).

 These stands are so handy for the tree--no awkward screwing in the three bolts that secure the tree on most stands sold in the stores.  Simply lay the tree on its side and insert the spike into the hole in the bottom and tilt the tree to stand up position--so easy!

I purchased my tree on Monday night and its halfway decorated--going with a gold and silver theme this year:)  My family room is small so I chose one of the pink tag trees ($45) not too tall and very slim.

Hope you have a great holiday season!

If you'd like to buy or sell a home call me today, I will treat your transaction as if it were my own!
