Parksville school to host annual Christmas tree sale

Springwood Elementary PAC fundraiser Dec. 9 to include craft fair

The Springwood Elementary School PAC’s fourth annual Christmas tree fundraiser sale is coming soon to help deck the halls.

All proceeds will benefit students at SES toward class field trips, playground upgrades or outdoor/indoor sporting equipment.

Trees will be for sale to the public Saturday, Dec. 9, from 9 a.m.- 2 p.m. at the front of Springwood Elementary School (450 Despard Ave., Parksville). The event takes place snow, rain or shine, the school’s PAC announced in a written release.

All trees are cut fresh from Whiskey Creek Christmas Tree Farm. Cost is $35 for trees up to 8 ft. tall, or $40 for trees 8+ ft. tall. Volunteers will be available to help customers get purchased trees to their vehicles. By special request, trees can be delivered locally to customers’ homes for an additional fee.

Springwood students will also be hosting their Entrepreneurs Craft Fair, featuring many unique crafts made homemade by SES kids. There will be hot dogs, hot chocolate, cookies, music and plenty of Christmas spirit, the PAC said.

Springwood PAC strongly suggest pre-ordering Christmas trees, as it assures members on the number of trees to order. Completed pre-order forms can be dropped off at Springwood Elementary Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Customers are asked to enclose in an envelope their full name and phone number, along with cash or cheque, to SES PAC. Pre-orders deadline is Dec. 1.

If you have any questions, please email “Subject – Xmas Tree” to springwoodpac@gmail.com.
