The Rotary Club of Weston & Wayland will once again be selling Christmas trees, fostering a holiday tradition that originated in Riga, Latvia, in 1510, when the first decorated Christmas tree was recorded. In 1531, Protestant Reformer Martin Luther placed the first candles on a "Tannenbaum," a "fir tree."
Sales will begin at 10 am on Friday, November 26th, the day after Thanksgiving, and run until Christmas Eve. Hours will be Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am - 6 pm plus Thursday and Friday evenings from 4:30 – 7:30 pm. Come see us at the First Baptist Church of Weston, 657 Boston Post Road. NEWS FLASH: The trees arrived and they are larger than expected: Most are 6'-8' and there are some 10', 12', and one 14' tree. 
"Most people buy their trees the first week of December," says Robert Mosher, chair of the Christmas tree committee. "This year, I encourage people not to wait until the last minute as we are likely to sell out of trees." He also advised that those who want 10-12 ft. trees should shop early as the tallest trees go first.  Five species of trees are the most commonly used, Balsam, Douglas, Fraser Fir, Scotch Pine, and Blue Spruce. Still, the Balsam Fir is the most fragrant and, for that reason, the most popular. The Rotary Club will offer 300+ Balsam trees ranging from 3 ft to 10 ft in height, along with 14, 16, & 20" Balsam wreaths.
The Rotary club will use proceeds from the tree sales to benefit several charities: Middlesex Human Services, including Bristol Lodge, local food pantries, need-based college scholarships in Weston and Wayland, and other Rotary Club community service projects.  
Special Caroling Event: Please join us at the Christmas Tree Sale on Thursday, December 2 at 6:30 pm when the St. Peter’s Acapella Choir Quartet will be joining us to sing holiday carols…. The more the merrier!
