19 November: We will start our Christmas tree sale this coming Saturday, Nov 24 with the arrival of 130 trees.
Again we are grateful to Vicki Salsbury of Salsbury Farm Hardware for providing a place for our sale. Salsbury Farm is at Red Rock Corner in Town Hill
This is a big fund raiser for us that helps us provide summer music scholarships and other opportunities that the boosters make available to our students.
We are going with a different provider this year and we’ve been up to their tree lot to see the trees. They are nicely trimmed and look really good.
We need your help to sell them.
Sign up here to volunteer:
We’re doing the schedule a little different this year, with 2 hour signup blocks rather than 4. That way you can more easily find times that suit your schedule.
You can also contact Brian Booher, email@example.com, 590-1159 directly if you have questions or need help signing up.
15 Nov: If you didn't get your fruit order in, bring it on MONDAY, since there was no school today!
