ABR Joins Optimist Tree Lot Sale

By ABR, 11/26/22, 1:15PM EST


The Optimist Club of Arlington opened its tree lot in a new location (the Knights of Columbus) with the help of many familiar faces! Read more about the start of this long tradition here in the Sun Gazette

ABR will staff the lot Nov 28-Dec 4. Volunteer to help here.

The Optimist Club of Arlington is ABR's largest and longest supporters. Their Christmas tree lot, which also includes wreaths, roping pine, pine swags and the annual White House ornament, is their biggest fundraiser and has been operating for more than 75 years. This year they will be in a NEW LOCATION at the Knights of Columbus, 5115 Little Falls Road, Arlington 22207.

The Optimist Club is a National Organization, but the Arlington Chapter is devoted to youth sports in the community. They are ABR's Baseball's biggest sponsor by far and have been with us since the beginning, over 35 years ago. They rely heavily on ABR to set up the lot, unload the trucks when the trees arrive and cover a week selling. In fact, our weekend shifts are expected to be the biggest day of tree sales and they expect to sell out early again this year.

One other fact that is not widely known, is The Optimist Tree Lot is the LARGEST tree lot in Northern Virginia!

Please sign up to volunteer here: Tree Lot Volunteer, and be sure to visit them for your holiday greenery beginning on November 25.
