Mayfield National Honor Society (NHS) students and advisor Pam King joined with members of the Broadalbin-Perth High School Key Club and NHS and Boy Scout Troop 5051B in helping the Broadalbin-Perth Lions Club with a Christmas tree wrapping and fundraising project at Bob’s Trees on Saturday, Dec. 10.

The Lions and their young community partners staffed four locations around the sprawling tree farm and provided tree wrapping and tie-down services for customers. Helping out all day, the students earned time for their community service graduation requirement, and the Scouts earned credit toward merit badges. All provided a great service during a joyful time of the year.

A cold and clear December day brought many out to Bob’s Trees where the Broadalbin-Perth Lions Club was assisted by local high school students and Scouts during their annual tree wrapping fundraiser. The wrapping of trees was as brisk as the weather.
