New Market to host Christmas tree fundraiser -- Gazette.Net


The New Market Volunteer Fire Company will host its first Christmas tree lot starting this month.

The Christmas tree sale will be held from 6-10 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m.-10 p.m. on weekends, starting Saturday through Dec. 23. The lot will be behind the fire station, at 76 West Main St.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to the fire departmentís building project fund and other capital improvement projects.

Construction is progressing on the renovation and expansion of the companyís 57-year-old fire station. The project — which is expected to be complete in February— includes a 3,000-square-foot addition and adds a second floor to the building.

The estimated $1-million project will also expand the stationís bay area.
