Christmas trees are coming!
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only a month away. But do you know what opens right after Thanksgiving? The Lions Christmas Tree lot – and we’ve moved again! This year we plan to be selling trees at the Ashland Farmers Market on Front Street! We’ll have lots more surprises in store this year as well. Please consider buying your fresh Christmas tree from the Ashland Lions this year and donate to a great cause. Remember, Lions give back 100% of fundraising to eye research and the local community. Hope to see you soon!
