A wintry mix of precipitation is possible Thursday morning north and west of Baltimore. And then before the day is out, the region could break a record for its wettest year since at least 1871. The National Weather Service is forecasting a dusting of snow and a glaze of ice west of Interstate 95.
The sale is held at Heavenly Waters Park near Harford Mall. The trees, which range from 5 to 9 feet tall, are $60 (cash or check) regardless of size.
In previous years, students from Bel Air High School and other community organizations have helped unload the trucks on the Saturday morning they’re delivered.
“This is the Lions largest fundraiser of the year and, through this and other service efforts, the Bel Air Lions contribute over $50,000 in donations and services back to the community each year. Over the years, this has become an important part of the community’s holiday celebration,” David Ellis, chairman of the Lions tree sales event, said.
The Lions provide many services to the community each year including sight and hearing conservation programs, eyeglasses and hearing aids, support to local food banks and homeless shelters; support to many youth activities including Child Safety Day, scouting, Explorers, community service scholarships, Bel Air High School sports and drama activities and Harford County Teen Court; assisting youth to attend Diabetes camps; July 4 celebration support; medical equipment lending closet; and Rockfield Manor garden sponsorship.
