The Lassiter High School Band’s annual Christmas Tree Lot is now open at the Highland Plaza Publix in Marietta. The Lassiter Band Booster Association (LBBA) and Lassiter Band students are selling fresh North Carolina Fraser Firs and wreaths, holiday ornaments and other seasonal items through Dec. 9.
“The Tree Lot offers great opportunities to visit with Lassiter students and community members – and it’s a really fun way to kick off the holiday season,” said LBBA president Todd Barney.
“This is our Christmas tradition,” said customer Phillip Gilbert, who chose a tree with help from his stepson Deveren. “They always have a great selection of beautiful trees, and we like helping the band and giving back to our community.”
The event is an important fundraiser which allows LBBA to purchase and repair instruments and offer students educational enrichment opportunities.
Customers who purchase a tree receive complimentary trimming, wrapping and loading into their vehicles, and home delivery is available for an additional fee.
