Optimist Christmas Tree Sale 2018

Sign Up to Volunteer Here: Tree Lot Volunteer

The Optimist Club of Arlington (Friends of Youth) will be conducting their annual Christmas tree sale, located on the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot at Lee Highway and Glebe Road, beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving running through Christmas Eve, unless they sell out sooner. They have been selling trees on this lot for the past 70 years and need our help!

Since 1986, The Optimist Club has been a major supporter of Arlington Babe Ruth Baseball, and many other Arlington youth organizations. Their annual donation to ABR supports almost 40 ABR teams each spring! They are ABR's largest donor and have been since the league's beginning. In addition to their support of our teams, each year the Optimists host a Coaches' Appreciation dinner for Arlington youth league coaches and invite a professional athlete to speak.

The Optimists depend on volunteers to assist them with their tree sale. This year they have requested that Babe Ruth Baseball, coaches, parents and older teens, provide volunteers to totally staff the lot from Saturday, December 1st through Friday, December 7th.
