Arbuckle FFA Christmas Tree lot, now open.

Live Christmas trees are now available at the Arbuckle FFA Tree lot located at the Pierce High School tennis court on Wildwood Road. “Normally, the stand is open the day after Thanksgiving. This year with having the week off, we did things a little differently,” said Arbuckle FFA Advisor Erin Sweet.

Saturday was the first day for the annual Christmas tree fundraiser at Pierce High School, benefiting the School’s FFA Club. Over 135 trees were delivered and a second shipment of 90 is expected next week.

“The funds raised helps pay for sending our FFA students to the state convention, and various field days and competitions,” said Sweet.

Renata Montañez and her brother Alfredo worked the Saturday shift.

“This is our first shift,” said Montañez. “It’s a nice way to help with the FFA and to get points to raise a lamb to sell at the fair.”

Sweet added that FFA students are given points for various activities to qualify for showmanship at the fair, or toward their community service graduation requirement.

“This is a great opportunity for the students to learn salesmanship, communications, and bookkeeping,” said Sweet who is the Ag business instructor. “They also learn the importance of shift responsibility. Once they sign-up they have to work the shift or find someone to work for them.”

An annual tradition

For many Arbuckle residents, the Arbuckle FFA Christmas Tree lot is an annual tradition.

“We’ve been coming here for at least 20 years,” said Gerry Rominger.

“They generally have a great selection, and always have a tree we like,” said Elaine Rominger. “We’ve been lucky to find the best tree every time.”

“We’re proud to support the local FFA,” Gerry Rominger said.

To start your own family tradition, the Arbuckle FFA Christmas Tree stand is open daily through Friday, Dec. 23. It is open Saturday and Sunday, 10 AM to 6 PM, and Monday through Friday, 3:30 PM to 7 PM.

Trees vary in size from 5-feet to 12-feet tall and range from $35 to $100.

Sweet added that a shipment of wreaths will be arriving on Thursday.
