Holiday tree sales brisk at FFA

FALLS VILLAGE — By the time a couple of reporters got to the FFA holiday store  Saturday, Nov. 26, 100 of more than 700 Christmas trees had been sold.

Business was brisk at 1 p.m., as members of the Housatonic FFA hustled to serve a steady stream of customers coming to the south side of the Housatonic Valley Regional High School campus.

Dave Moran, the head of the Ag-Ed department at the high school, said the trees arrived the week before Thanksgiving.

Spencer Markow, a senior who serves as FFA treasurer, demonstrated for The Lakeville Journal how to wrap a tree in nylon netting.

He also volunteered that he had taken some aerial photos of the south side of campus, with the trees lined up and ready to go.

Markow said the team of some 25 students and faculty unloaded the trees in one class period (about 50 minutes).

“I’m pretty sure that’s a record.”

Inside, people were buying poinsettias, gigantic blocks of cheese and wreaths.

The FFA holiday store is open 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily through Dec. 22. Be aware that the trees sell out quickly.

The FFA holiday store is the organization’s primary fundraiser.
