Y’s Men’s Annual Christmas Tree Sale:

Don’t forget to stop by the Y’s Men’s Christmas Tree Sale on Elm Street field across from Stop & Shop.  My husband and I just bought our tree here last weekend. We had the best little helpers, straight from our very own Roosevelt Middle School.  Open 7 days a week, now through December 23rd, this sale is a Westfield tradition since 1953. Proceeds from this Christmas tree sale will benefit the Westfield Area Y and other local charities.  For more information on this sale, please click here.
