Buy your Christmas tree from an Optimist Club


It's the first week in November.  Can you believe that it is less than 50 days until Christmas?  That means pretty soon many of us will be looking for a Christmas tree and many Optimist Clubs will be busy with their major fundraising effort of the year. 

For some clubs, the tree lot can mean up to 80% or more of their income.  With that revenue they fund youth serving projects throughout the year including sports programs, essay and oratorical contests, respect for law, youth appreciation and many more projects that bring out the best in children. 

I'm sure it will come as no surprise to you; I'm buying my Christmas tree from an Optimist Club.  I hope you do too.
