Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue sold its final tree of the 2023 season on Saturday, December 9, just 3½ weeks into this year’s sales season.

THANK YOU to everyone who purchased a tree, wreath, kissing ball and/or cemetery box this year. We appreciate your support.

First Weekend of Christmas Trees Sale

THANK YOU for a very good first weekend of sales! We sold 272 trees during the first weekend of our 2023 Christmas Trees (& More!) Sale. The first sale on Friday was to a woman heading directly to Maryland, one of the final sales on Sunday was to Erica F (pictured), who was taking hers home to Rhode Island. Between midday Friday and late afternoon Sunday, dozens of trees — as wreaths, cemetery boxes, pine roping, tree stands and tree bags — were sold to friends, family, neighbors and supporters.

Tree sales will resume Thursday, November 30, 6-9 pm at our main station.
