Brother, Can You Spare a Christmas Tree?
From Bethlehem, the Christmas City:
The Citizens’ Christmas City Committee is seeking donations of tall trees for the Christmas holiday season. Although the request is made early, the committee found the time to be appropriate since it is a time of year when homeowners are addressing landscape issues and may be want to replace an oversized fir tree.
The trees need to be nicely shaped, 40-50 feet in height, must be accessible by the roadway, and within no more than 10 miles of the city center. City Electrician Greg Cryder, will come out to the location and inspect the tree for acceptability.
Donation of these trees will be recognized at the annual Christmas City Tree Lighting Ceremony, which will take place on Friday, November 29, 2013, at 4:30PM on Payrow Plaza.
Anyone wishing to donate a tree should call Greg Cryder or Chris Lenhart at 610-865-7108.
