YMCA begins annual Christmas tree sale Friday

Anyone who wants a fresh tree for the Christmas season will have an opportunity to buy one and support the YMCA of the North starting Friday.

This is the 76th year of the fundraiser, which will help children participate in Y programs and camps. The YMCA says they will accept cash, checks and most credit cards, and will also have workers available to help load the tree in your vehicle. CLICK HERE for additional information about the sale.
