An update from Westborough Civic Club:

As predicted, the annual Civic Club sale of Christmas trees has all the signs of again being the success that it has grown into over the past 39 years.

We're already sold out of all the roping and over 500 wreaths that were delivered just after Thanksgiving!

There are only about 50 trees left for sale, before the lot closes for another year.

Vice-president Steve Hart is urging those families in need of a tree to try and get there early Saturday with,

"No guarantee that, by the time the Patriots play on Sunday, there will be anything left at all.

"We are again both pleased and amazed with the response we have had to this fund-raising event.

"With over 1,400 trees already sold, it’s a real joy to be able to go into the New Year in the knowledge that the Club can again support many great causes here in town".

The lot remains open 9.00 am - 9.00 pm at the weekend and 1.00 - 9.00 pm. weekdays....... or until the last tree is sold.

###

Already have a tree?  How about considering a tree as an early gift for someone who's not as fortunate?  Let's help out both our neighbors AND the Westborough Civic Club!

Wreaths - Trees of all sizes - Roping by the yard

Tree Lot is Open Daily starting Saturday Nov 29th

Monday - Friday 1pm to 9pm
Saturday - Sunday 9am to 9pm

Westborough Civic Club Tree Lot ("Tufts Machine Lot") is located at
55 East Main Street (Rt. 30), Westborough

Westborough Civic Club (website, Facebook page) is a registered charitable organization established in 1975 for the sole purpose of benefiting the town of Westborough and its residents. Club members spent last weekend preparing the club’s annual Tree Lot for delivery of trees, wreaths and roping ready for opening day sales on Thanksgiving Saturday. This will be the club’s 39th year of fund-raising for causes around the town and as always members are hoping to have sold every one of the 1,400 trees and 500 wreaths by Christmas Eve.

  • The upcoming thirty-ninth consecutive fund-raising season will commence with the delivery of over 1,400 trees and 500 wreaths on Saturday 29th November
  • This is traditionally a strong community event, with local scouts, Venture Crew and WHS sports teams being present to help members with unloading and setting up the trees
  • At 9.00 am that day the tree lot officially opens for business; due to the date of Thanksgiving there are only 26 days in which the Club hopes to sell its entire stock of trees and wreaths.
  • Customers both young and old are welcomed at the lot with a free candy cane from the 3,000 handed out during the season.
