GENESEO – Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 5005 Christmas tree sales at the Christmas tree sale will be at Geneseo Central School Bus Garage on South Street.
The sales will begin Friday, November 27. Sale hours for Monday through Friday are from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday are from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
In 2014, the Post sold just under 400 Christmas trees between Thanksgiving and Dec. 12. That year was the first time that they did so with the help of SUNY Geneseo students. The arrangement was made possible through conversations with SUNY Geneseo’s Dr. Becky Glass, Executive Assistant to the college President, and Wendi Kinney, Assistant Dean of Students for Fraternal Life and Off-Campus Services.
The VFW will use the funds from this year’s sale to put on charity events for vets in locations throughout the Genesee region, including Geneseo Central School, Canandaigua hospitals, and Murray Hill Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
