Support your local Boy Scout Troops 50 & 51 with their annual Christmas Tree Sale at the Knights of Columbus on East Main Street (Rte 133). Sale begins Friday, November 25 & will continue every weekend (Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays) until Saturday, December 24 (or until all trees are sold). During hours when the stand is closed, trees can be purchased by removing the colored tag off of the desired tree & bringing it & payment to the Liquor Store next door (next to the Georgetown Building Supply). Inventory includes Balsam Firs (4-10 feet) & Fraser Firs (6-9 feet). Prices range from $25 to $65 depending upon size & type. Proceeds will help provide funds for the programs of both Troops. Thank you for your continued support. You can read the flyer here.

Did you know that you can make a free donation to the charity of your choice every time you shop at Amazon? Amazon has something called the Smile Program and if you sign up every time you shop Amazon makes a donation to the charity of your choice at Amazon’s expense. Their list of charities includes every charity registered with the IRS. The one issue you need to be aware of is the charity you pick has to have set themselves up with Amazon or the money goes into an account on hold until the charity signs up with them. I have already worked through this issue with the Georgetown Education Foundation (Georgetown Public Education Foundation Inc). You can read about the program here.
