FFA Holiday Shop expected to sell out fast

FALLS VILLAGE —  On a chilly Wednesday, Nov. 17, around 8 a.m., it was all hands on deck at Housatonic Valley Regional High School (HVRHS) as students and staff helped unload 750 Christmas trees for the Housatonic FFA holiday store.

The trees were a mix of firs: Fraser, premium silver and balsam.

The FFA holiday store is open Nov. 27 through Dec. 23, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The store includes trees, Cabot cheese, poinsettias, trees, wreaths, roping, fresh yogurt and other local products.

Last year the trees sold out in two weeks. HVRHS agricultural education teacher Danielle Melino said she expects this year to be similar.

There are two wreath production nights scheduled: Wednesday, Dec. 1, and Thursday, Dec. 9, both from 7 to 9 p.m. Masks are required for attendees. All community members are invited to come help and to learn techniques and tricks from experienced wreath makers. No experience is necessary.
