The first inkling of Christmas has arrived in Belmont as the Select Board approved the Belmont Lions Club’s 65th annual Holiday Tree and Wreath Sale to take place at the War Memorial Delta across from the MBTA commuter rail station at 1 Common St.
The sale, which began in 1957, will begin the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, Nov. 25, at approximately 2 p.m. While the final day will be on Christmas Eve, Saturday, Dec. 24, it will actually closes when the last tree and wreath is sold which occurs well before the final day.
Lions’ Co-President Tom Hevey said despite inflation and the high cost of transportation, tree prices will see only small increases from last year.
In addition to the tree sale, the club is making a donation of holiday tree lights that will be added to two
mature trees on the Delta, to be installed by Belmont Light.
As one of the largest retailer of Christmas trees in the area, the Lions Club sale includes wreaths, mantle pieces, baskets and many other holidays items. The trees come from the same farm in Nova Scotia since 1957, has been supplying the club.
