The Westfield Area Y Men’s Club Annual Christmas Tree Sale has been a community tradition since 1947, with all proceeds benefiting local charities and organizations. This year’s tree selection includes top quality Fraser Firs and Balsam Firs. This year also features a new hybrid tree called a “Fralsam”. This is grown in Vermont and combines the needle longevity of a Fraser with the evergreen smell of a Balsam. It’s a very full and long lasting tree Sizes range from 3 foot “table top” Balsams all the way up to 12 foot Balsams. Also available are Wreathes, Evergreen Roping, Grave Covers and Tree Stands.
The tree lot is located on the Elm Street Athletic Field, across from Stop & Shop. Opening day is Saturday, November 30th and the sale continues through December 23rd or until the trees run out. Lot hours are 9:00 am to 6:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays; 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm Monday thru Friday.
Selling Christmas trees has been the Club’s primary fundraising method. Since its inception, the Y’s Men have raised over $2.5 million for community charitable donations. Some of the many organizations that have benefitted from the money raised include the Westfield United Fund, Contact Caring, Children’s Specialized Hospital, Imagine, Resolve Community Counseling, Scotch Plains and Westfield Rescue Squads, Westfield Crew, Master Gardeners Club, and Westfield Area YMCA.
