A hardworking but jovial crew turned out yesterday morning at the Maine Sport's Rockport parking lot to set up the stands that will hold the hundreds of trees and wreaths heading our way. Sales start the day after Thanksgiving and chief tree wrangler Tim Dresser (far left) says he expects they'll sell fast. So plan to do your tree and wreath shopping early this year. Hours are 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays & Sundays, "Honor Box" Mondays thru Wednesdays, starting November 25 and continuing thru December 18 or until the last tree is sold, whichever comes first. West Bay Rotarians will help you carefully select and then load your tree, too!
