The 55th annual Brattleboro Rotary Club Christmas Tree Fundraiser will officially begin Saturday, Dec. 7, continuing through Sunday, Dec. 15.
 
As many as 350 Vermont-grown trees of all shapes and sizes will be sold daily in front of Brattleboro Bowl on Putney Road for nine days.
 
"The difference this year is the number of days in which the trees will be sold," said Immediate Past President Bill Vermouth, "We are shortening the days of the sales so that our members will be better able to provide coverage over the weekend and weekdays."
 
"On Dec. 7, we will kick off sales with a remote broadcast by WTSA 96.7FM at 9 AM, " continued Vermouth. "In addition to cider and Christmas cookies, the first 250 trees will include a handmade Christmas tree ornament from the Czech Republic."
 
Since 1965, the Brattleboro Rotary Club has sold Christmas trees as a fundraiser for the club's annual student scholarship awards of $2,000 to $3,000 each. To date, the club has awarded close to $500,000 in scholarships.
