Charitree

Deck your halls and do some good at the same time. The Exchange Club, a group devoted to promoting the interests of local youth, has its biggest fundraiser in the holiday season. They've joined forces with Westhill High School Marching Band, and the two groups are selling Christmas trees at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center a the Observatory Parking Lot (off Scofieldtown Road).

They offer all the greenery you need to spruce up your home: balsam trees, fir trees, wreaths, roping and stands. Stop by between now and December 22nd on:

- Sundays from 10am-7pm
- Mondays to Wednesdays from 3-7pm
- Thursdays from 3-9pm
- Fridays from noon-9pm
- Saturdays from 9-9pm

They are happy to trim, wrap and secure your tree for free!

PS - We bought out tree today at the event, and it was a really pleasant experience. The sales folks were helpful, there was a small but good selection. There weren't a ton of people and the line moved pretty quickly. We got a pretty small tree at the reasonable price of $55. Well worth the trip!

Note that you need to bring a checkbook or cash because they don't take plastic.

Ooops - "out" = "our"
