LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Lafayette Noon Optimist Club will kick off their Christmas tree sales Saturday morning at 9 A.M.

The trees will be sold in the parking lot of the Frozen Custard on Main Street, and will be sold according to weight and species of tree. There will be a few types of trees available, ranging from fir trees to pine trees.

Those who buy a tree from the lot aren't just participating in a holiday tradition, they are doing something to help the Greater Lafayette Community. Money raised by the sales got towards children and community programs such as the Claire E. and Patrick G. Mackey Children's Cancer Foundation and Camp WACK.

Sales Director, Michael Bucy, spoke about how it's not just about buying a Christmas tree, it's about supporting the community. He also gave his thoughts on why shoppers should think about buying a real tree instead of turning to an artificial tree for the convenience of easy maintenance. 

"You're not just buying a tree here, you're helping the community, the children of the community. We shop to get some top notch trees. There at least as good as anywhere else that you might get, the price is just as good. And you get that warm fuzzy feeling for knowing that you're helping the community."

Bucy also spoke about how he fears that the road construction around the tree lot may be a deterrent to buyers, but he said that if someone really wants a Christmas tree, they'll brave the construction. 

Sales start at 9 A.M. on Saturday morning and will go until Christmas Eve - while supplies last.
