The Andover Townsman

---- — It’s one-stop shopping for holiday decorations as the popular Christmas tree lot run entirely by volunteers of Andover Youth Services opens Wednesday, Nov. 27, at 3 p.m. behind West Middle School at 80 Shawsheen Road.

Glen Wilson, assistant director of Andover Youth Services and manager of the tree lot, said the Christmas tree delivery from Canada was expected on Sunday, Nov. 24, and trees would go on sale three days later.

The freshly cut balsam firs from New Brunswick and Fraser firs from North Carolina will range in size from 4 to 15 feet or more. In addition, decorated and undecorated wreaths, kissing balls, garland and custom centerpieces will be for sale. Prices were not set as of press time.

Tree lot hours are 3 to 8:30 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends through Dec. 22 or until the inventory sells out.

All proceeds benefit Andover Youth Services and the opening of the new youth center. For more information, call AYS at 978-623-8241.
