Panama City, FL –
BAY COUNTY Fla. (WMBB) – The Bay County Boys and Girls Club Christmas Tree Park is officially open to the public.
Sunday at 10 a.m., the tree-lined lot in front of Bill Cramer Chevrolet in Panama City is open and will not close until 8 p.m. each evening.
And the trees go fast. There were just over 600 trees to start Sunday, but more than 300 were sold by 2 p.m.
Boys and Girls Club CEO Hank Hill said without the help of the community they would not have been able to succeed.
Over 80 volunteers alone helped unload the trees on Saturday.
Hill said they will remain open until the last tree is sold and there are more shipments to come in the coming weeks.
“Today is the opening of our park with trees,” said Hill. “But these are really the benefits that go to the boys and girls club so that we can mentor the kids there after school, in our summer and after-school programs.
Hill said they were always looking for volunteers to help around the field. Pack trees and help residents carry trees to their vehicles.
“While the selection is really good, go out there and pick your tree,” Hill said. “Get it cut. They smell fantastic, they’re all Fraser furs. You can’t find a better tree. They are not commercial trees, they are premium trees.
They usually run out of trees by the second week of December, so if you want to pick a tree this Christmas, you might want to act quickly.
