Sat, Dec 6th-Help carry the Trees volunteer event

Posted by on Nov 20, 2014 in Events, MG Chronicles, News and Events

Attn:  New MG Class and all Master Gardeners – You are invited to participate in our 8th Annual “Help Carry the  Trees” Party on Saturday, December 6, 2014, 8:00-10:30 a.m., at the Westfield Y’s Men’s Club Association’s Annual Holiday Tree and Wreath Sale, corner of Elm and Walnut streets in Westfield, opposite the Stop & Shop supermarket. There is a parking lot located on Walnut Street, behind the trailer.

Details:  Earn hours, give back to the community, and have fun helping the Westfield Y’s Men’s Club unload a shipment of Christmas trees for their Annual Holiday Tree and Wreath Sale.  The sale is WYMCA’s primary fundraiser. All profits go to local youth organizations and community service groups.  These include our Master Gardeners, to whom WYMCA has generously donated to our organization for 8 years. We have received a total of $8,500 in grants from the Y’s Men, i.e., $1,000 for 7 years, and $1,500 in 2008.  In return, the Y’s Men ask the MGs and all aided groups to donate some time and muscle at their Annual Sale. Please come out and help for a couple of hours.

Note: Typically, 2 or 3 people carry each tree the short distance from truck to tree lot.  Have a bad back?  Not to worry.  We need your moral support anyway, so please come out to cheer us on — or just to go shopping for your tree, wreath or tree stand.

Thanks, everyone.
