The Bay Village Kiwanis Club is conducting their annual Christmas tree sale from Friday, Nov. 24, until Saturday, Dec. 16. Bay Kiwanis has been selling Christmas trees since 2004. Tree sales are held near the gazebo in Cahoon Memorial Park. Hours are 4-7 p.m. on Fridays, and 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Three types of trees are available: Douglas fir, Colorado spruce and Fraser fir, with sizes ranging from 6 feet to 10 feet.

Tree pricing is as follows:

  • 6- to 7-foot Douglas fir and Colorado spruce: $40 each
  • 6- to 7-foot Fraser fir: $60
  • 7- to 8-foot Fraser fir: $70
  • 9- to 10-foot Fraser fir: $130

The proceeds are used to support college scholarships and numerous community service projects undertaken by the Bay Village Kiwanis Club throughout the area and around the world. Local projects have helped the Bay Village Schools, Fire Department, Police Department and organizations such as Lake Erie Nature & Science Center, BAYarts, Village Project, Gathering Place and Providence House. International projects supported by Bay Village Kiwanis Club include The Eliminate Project, working towards eliminating Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus, and UNICEF to combat thyroid disease. Both diseases have been eliminated in many countries.

Bay Kiwanis club meets most Tuesday evenings at Bay United Methodist Church on the corner of Bassett and Lake roads. Join us for dinner and one of our meetings. Visit for more information.
