If you thought the Christmas tree at Woodbury Days—when it was 95 and humid—seemed a little out of place, you weren’t alone.
“People were a little surprised by it,” said Eric Rislove with the Woodbury Royals Booster Club.
It was part of a promotion for the booster club’s sale of trees this winter.
It will be the first time the Royals Booster Club has sold trees, and the proceeds will benefit athletics and activities at Woodbury High School, Rislove said.
The Woodbury City Council on Wednesday is expected to vote on a permit allowing the booster club to sell trees at a 16,150-square-foot space in parking lot at Woodbury High School.
“We’re excited,” Rislove said, crediting Peter McNiff with the idea.
The area, in the corner of the student lot near the tennis courts, is expected to be open from Nov. 1 through Jan. 5. And the booster club is only planning to sell trees, not wreaths and other accessories.
“We don’t want to compete with the Boy Scouts and all that,” Rislove said.
An online order form for the fraser firs will soon be available on the Woodbury Royals Booster Club website.
