Pago Pago, American Samoa – The Rotary Club of Pago Pago is delighted to announce that it is now accepting orders for their much-anticipated annual Christmas Tree Sale. This cherished tradition, spanning over three decades, not only ushers in the holiday season but also serves as a vital fundraiser for the club's community service work.
Each year, the Rotary Club of Pago Pago imports a shipping container brimming with Christmas trees from the US Mainland, providing the local community with the opportunity to purchase beautifully fresh trees and wreaths to adorn their homes during the holiday season. This project has become a beloved part of the island's Christmas festivities.
Orders for Christmas trees are now open, and early birds can secure their 6 to 7-foot trees at a special price of $85 when prepaid. For those who order after arrival, the cost will be $95. For those seeking grandeur, 9 to 10-foot trees are available for $420. Additionally, the Rotary Club of Pago Pago is offering wreaths for $40 prepaid and $45 after arrival.
You can place your order now at the Tool Shop in Tafuna or Transpac. It's an opportunity to contribute to Rotary's community efforts while bringing the joy and scent of the Christmas season into your home. Notably, 100% of the proceeds from this Christmas Tree Sale will be directed toward the Rotary Club of Pago Pago's community service projects, which benefit various causes in the area.
The Rotary Club of Pago Pago extends heartfelt gratitude to Swire Shipping for their generous support in providing shipping services for the Christmas trees. In addition, the club acknowledges Peter E. Reid Stevedoring and the Tool Shop for their valuable contributions to defray the costs of this project. Please thank these businesses when you visit their offices.
Faafua Cummings, the Rotary Club's fundraising chair, emphasized the significance of this annual event, stating, "It's the best way to celebrate Christmas. A gift for yourself provides a gift for many others."
The Christmas trees are expected to be available for pickup in time for Thanksgiving weekend. Don't miss this opportunity to enhance your holiday celebrations while supporting vital community service projects.
