Since 1953, the Westfield Area Y Men’s Club has held its annual Christmas Tree Sale at the Elm Street field. All proceeds are donated to local charities and non-profit organizations. The event is run by club members from Westfield, Scotch Plains, Mountainside and Cranford, along with many volunteers from area organizations and local youth.
The trees will be delivered and lot set up between November 17th– 23rd. This is no small feat, as there are approximately three tractor-trailer loads of trees per year!
Opening day is Saturday, November 24th and ends on Saturday, December 22rd, or until the trees run out. Lot hours are 9:00 am-6:00 pm Saturday and Sunday and 5:00 – 9:00 pm Monday-Friday.
For more information, please visit us on Facebook at “Westfield Area Y’s Men’s Club Christmas Tree Sale” or www.westfieldynj.org/get-involved/community-partners/ys-mens-club/.

The Westfield Area YMCA invites the community to celebrate the holiday season at the 3rd annual “Swim with Santa” on Sunday, December 16th at the Main Y Facility located at 220 Clark Street in Westfield.
Come as a family! Participants choose a 30-minute time slot between 1:00-3:00pm to swim with Santa and his elves. A parent or guardian must be in the pool with children under age 5 or children who can’t swim. Before or after your time in the pool, enjoy more fun with arts & crafts.
Registration is open to members and non-members online or in-person at the Welcome Center. Proceeds benefit the Y’s Annual Support Campaign which ensures that no one who lives or works in Cranford, Garwood, Mountainside or Westfield and is experiencing a bona fide financial hardship is denied the opportunity to participate at the Y. We are a drop off location for the Westfield Food Pantry! Feel free to bring a non-perishable item.
