CHRISTMAS TREES FOR SALE

The Livingston Lions Club is offering Christmas trees for sale, an annual tradition that is now in its 40th year. The highly successful project began when Lion Kent Colburn planted the trees on property in the Trinity River bottom at Romayor. After four years of growth to reach maturity, Colburn was not certain how to market them until he had a chance meeting with Lion Pete Mence. Mence suggested that the Livingston Lions Club set up a stand and sell them on a 50/50 basis. Colburn agreed and soon a team of Lion members went out to harvest and set them up for sale. The first location was a vacant lot west of Jackson’s Hardware on Church Street, and later moved to a spot next to Burger King. For the past 13 years, the club has, thanks to the generosity of The First National Bank, set up their Christmas tree corral in front of the bank on West Church Street. The club has trees available to the public. There are Scotch Pines for $40 each and a limited number of Blue Spruce trees for $60. Should you be interested in purchasing a tree or supporting the Livingston Lions Club, please contact the Club President, Lion Jared Jernigan, at (936) 433-0315. The operating hours for the Christmas tree lot are noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 1-6 p.m. Sunday.  Shown here are Lions Ann Zeigler and Dr. Mike Shukan.Photo by Emily Banks Wooten
