Lakeland Rotary Club tree sale going on now through ChristmasSubmitted: 11/29/2015
WOODRUFF - If they haven't already, people will start bringing out the Christmas decorations.

And it wouldn't be complete without that perfect Christmas tree.

The Lakeland Rotary Club wants you to get your tree at JJ's Acres in Woodruff. That's where the club is holding its annual Christmas tree sale.

"This is our annual sale. We've been doing this for decades. We're selling Christmas trees, wreathes, garland, winter baskets, and this is how we support some of our projects, both locally and around the world," said Rotary Christmas Tree and Wreath Sale Chairman Tim Sanderson.

This fundraiser is one of the Rotary Club's biggest of the year. It's always been very successful.

"I think this is something that a lot of people look forward to every year. This is how they kick off their holiday season, they come and pick out a tree from the rotary club," said Sanderson.

The trees are available at JJ's acres now until Christmas or until the trees are gone.
