Conshohocken residents know where to go for Christmas trees
December 4, 2013 by Max
Now that Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is on its way, the Harmonville Fire Company’s yearly Christmas tree sale is in full swing.
During this year’s sale, people in the Conshohocken area will have the choice of three different types of fresh-cut trees. All of them were grown in Pennsylvania, and varieties include blue spruce, Douglas firs and Fraser firs. The trees are cut just days before arriving at the sale, and the fire company is also selling wreaths, sprigs of garland, and tree stands.
The fire company can use printing services to promote the tree sale, which doubles as the biggest fundraising event for the company each year. All of the proceeds from the sale go to members of the company and help purchase new equipment. The starting price for the trees is $35.
This year’s sale is taking place at the station in Plymouth Meeting, at 904 Germantown Pike. The fire company will be open seven days a week, from 3:00 pm until 9:00 pm on weekdays, from 8:00 am until 9:00 pm on Saturdays and from 9:00 am until 9:00 pm on Sundays. The sale will continue until all of the trees and other greenery sell out.
Harmonville is also collecting toys for St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. People are encouraged to bring an unwrapped, new toy with them when they head to the fire station. The company will be dropping the toys off at the hospital after December 7.
