NORWOOD — As holiday shopping and decorating have begun in the north country, the Norwood Kiwanis Club’s annual Christmas tree sale will kick off this weekend at the recycling center, Bernard Avenue.

The $30 trees will be available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays until they sell out.

Norwood Kiwanis Club President Patricia L. Dean said the price is the same for all the trees, no matter the size.

Elizabeth A. Kirnie, coordinator for the Kiwanis sale, said the club buys 50 trees from a distributor, Potsdam Agway, 14 Pine St., which gets the trees from area growers.

Mrs. Dean said that in recent years, the club has been having trouble selling all the trees.

“Last year we had eight left over,” she said.

The club usually raises about $500 a year, which Mrs. Dean said stays local by funding different programs for children in the area.

“Our mission is to support children in our communities,” she said.

Mrs. Dean said several Kiwanis student organizations help out on the weekends selling Christmas trees.

Ms. Kirnie said 30 young helpers from K Kids, an elementary youth group sponsored by Kiwanis, will be selling trees again this year in groups of six each week.

“They hold up signs and look into people’s eyes and sell trees like crazy,” she said.
