One last terrific story from the sale. A non-member (at least for now), Jimmy Walker, took it upon himself to deliver a tree to a customer who wanted an Optimist tree, but had no way to bring it home. The family thanked us by sharing a picture of their beautiful tree, saying that we made their Christmas very special this year. Don’t you want to be a part of such a fine organization?

What: The annual Christmas Tree Sales is the major fundraiser for the Optimist Club of Arlington and it helps support the many academic, civic, and sports programs that affect over 10,000 Arlington youth each year. If you would like to participate in the Optimist’s tree selling fundraiser, you can also make a donation. The Arlington Optimist Club is a 501(C)3 organization and your donation is tax deductible.

The lot has been around for over 70 years! Our trees are freshly cut from Galax, Virginia. We will have all sizes of fraser firs as well as scotch pines; plus wreaths, garlands, tree stands, and White House Christmas ornaments will also be offered.

Where: The Knights of Columbus at 5115 Little Falls Rd, Arlington, VA 22207

Who: All workers on the lot are volunteers from the Arlington Community including youth athletic teams, high school Honor Societies, and Optimist members.
