The Riverview Boys & Girls Club annual Christmas Tree lot

Believe it or not, it's almost that time! The Riverview Boys & Girls Club annual Christmas Tree lot will be opening on Friday, November 30th at 5pm and will run daily until December 22nd (or trees are sold out). We are now looking for volunteers to help us with our tree sales. The weekends are the critical times. We are open on Saturdays 9am – 6pm and Sunday 11am – 5pm. We try to book people in for 3 hour shifts but you are welcome to stay all day! Those that have done it know how much fun it is. Bring your friends. Shifts fill quickly so let me know what day you are looking for soon so we can be sure to get you in. If your team would prefer a weekday or weeknight time, just let me know.

We are setting up, this year, in the Downey’s Home Hardware parking lot directly across the street from our previous location on Pinewood Rd in Riverview. You won’t be able to miss us. It will have lots of lights and Home Hardware is putting us up on their outdoor sign.

Get a group from work, your family or a bunch of friends. Come enjoy the fresh air and help make Christmas festive. You'll be helping so many children in the process as all money raised will go directly to the quality programs we provide for all the children and youth we see each year. Please give me a call at 387-7070 or drop me a note at lyndacarey@bgcriverview.com if you have some time. Don't miss out and thanks so much in advance.
