IF YOU are buying a fresh Christmas tree, members of the Anne Arundel Alarmers Association hope you will remember they are selling them again this year.
The Alarmers have set up shop on the parking lots of the Ferndale Fire Department, 4 S. Broadview Blvd., and Northway Liquor Store on Veterans Highway, north of Old Mill Road. The fire department lot is open from 10: 30 a.m. to 9 p.m. The liquor store lot operates from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Both are open daily until Christmas.
The tree sale is one of the main fund-raisers for the organization, which supplies food and beverages to firefighters and other public safety personnel during emergencies.
Scotch pine trees are $25; Frazier fir and blue spruce trees are $35; Douglas fir trees are $30.
With each tree purchased, the buyer receives a free raffle ticket for a chance to win one of three $25 gift certificates at a Giant Food store.
Assisted-living center plans
A representative of Chesapeake Services will discuss the company's plans for an assisted-living center at Andover and Hammonds Ferry roads at the Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association at 7: 30 p.m. Wednesday at Linthicum Elementary School.
Susan March, president of the improvement association, said the representative has been invited so members can discuss concerns about an entrance off Camp Meade Road.
"We have absolutely no objection to the facility," she said. "It has our full support. We have no problem with it whatsoever. But, we have expressed our concerns with the construction of the entrance and exit."
The improvement association's annual Christmas tree-lighting ceremony is scheduled at 5 p.m. Dec. 14 at Linthicum Elementary School.
The tree that has been used is being replaced with a 7-foot spruce that is being planted by Aspen Grove Landscaping, a business owned by Jason and Stephanie Pippen, who are donating their services.
The improvement association is looking for donations from the community for this event. Information: 410-850-0678.
