Fresh Christmas trees are on sale in the Lahaina Cannery Mall parking lot on weekdays from 3 to 7 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. This annual fundraiser by the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise (Rotarian Skeeter Stebbins is pictured) will raise money to support numerous community service projects in West Maui. The Noble Fir trees are kept in a refrigerated container on the lot, so they remain as fresh as the day they were cut. The large trees, six to seven feet, are $80; wreaths are $25; and there will also be “mini trees” in the two- to three-foot range, perfect for the condo dweller, with prices yet to be determined. Free delivery to any West Maui location from Olowalu to Kapalua is an added bonus. Too busy to stop by the lot? E-mail with your address and contact information, and Rotarians will bring a tree to you.
