Christmas tree sale Dec. 5-6

Annual fundraiser moves to Springwood Elementary School

The Springwood Elementary School PAC’s Christmas Tree Fundraiser Sale is coming soon to help deck the halls.

According to Sadie Binet, SES PAC secretary, this is the first Christmas tree fundraiser at the Parksville school.

The sale, however, is a continuation of a similar annual fundraiser held at the now-closed Winchelsea Elementary School.

“In the past years, it was a very successful community event, and we’re hoping to make it an even larger success with the combined quantity of students we now have,”  said Binet.

Springwood Elementary now contains students from Winchelsea, Parksville Elementary and Springwood Middle School.

Trees will be for sale at the back of the school on Friday, Dec. 5 from  3-6 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 6 from  9 a.m.-4 p.m.

On Saturday, there will also be hot dogs, hot chocolate, cookies, music and plenty of Christmas spirit.

The trees average 5-7 ft. and will sell for $30. There will also be some trees reaching 7-9 ft. tall for the same price while supplies last.

Trees 9 ft. and up are available by special request for $35 and must be pre-ordered by Nov. 20.

Volunteers will be available to help take your purchased tree to your vehicle.

All trees are from the Whiskey Creek Christmas Tree Farm.

If you are not in need of a tree but would still like to participate in sponsoring this fundraiser, you have the option of purchasing a tree for donation.

If you have any questions or would like to pre-order a tree, email springwoodpac@gmail.com

All proceeds will go toward purchasing outdoor equipment for the students at Springwood Elementary School.
