Ramsey Scouts' Christmas Tree Sale 'Long Standing Tradition'

Stop by Ramsey High School this weekend to buy a tree from borough scouts

They picked up a large order of Christmas trees from Canada on Black Friday, and fashioned wooden stands for them. They’ll help you pick one out that fits your family’s specifications, and they’ll even deliver the tree to your house.

This weekend, Ramsey Boy Scout Troop 31 will continue to host its annual Christmas Tree sale at the Ramsey High School tennis courts. This weekend marks the second of three that scouts will spend selling and delivering trees. Locals can stop by from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday to pick up a tree.

According to Scout Master Mike McKiever, the annual sale is a “long standing tradition. The whole thing has a very Norman Rockwell, old-fashioned, charming Christmas feel to it. It’s very festive.” The sale will have music, hot cocoa, and the Ramsey Girl Scouts selling wreaths next to the boys’ tree sale.

Trees cost $55, and the proceeds help fund Boy Scout activities throughout the rest of the year.

Troop 31 has nearly 100 members, ranging from age 11 to 18. Almost all of them will be taking turns selling trees during the sale.

“We’ve got a great mix of kids, and at this point we’ve been doing it so long, that the kids are doing everything. And, they really love it,” McKiever said.

And, remember, not long after the tree sale Saturday, Main Street will be shut down for the Home for the Holidays celebration.
