When I agreed to assist the Vancouver South Lions during their annual Christmas Tree sale, I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. Braving the bitter cold, and doing manual labour generally aren't my ideas of a good time, however I must say I've been having a great time (not that it shows in the above picture, I'm in the middle). I never realized how excited families get when selecting a Christmas Tree, and being able to assist, was instant gratification for me. Now I can go on about all the great things that the Vancouver South Lions Club does with the money raised, instead I'll just give you a link to follow (www.vancouversouthlions.com).
So if you haven't picked up a tree yet, then make your way over to the VSL Christmas Tree lot and support a great organization, and a tremendous group of volunteers. These guys and gals really know their stuff, and they should, they've been doing it for 59 years. I want to say a special thanks to the volunteers that I worked with Joe,Doug,Milan,Jesse, and Don.
