Right now! Free Christmas trees for veterans and people in need
By Chris Smith/THE PRESS DEMOCRAT
Adam Parks does not like thinking about tight finances causing a family to go without a Christmas tree.
Adam also has donated a few dozen trees to the local Veterans Administration clinic for free distribution to vets.
Anyone who has served in the military and would like a tree can go – first come, first served – to the vacant lot next to the clinic Airport and Brickway boulevards, near the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport.
Adam said from his family’s tree ranch at Gravenstein Highway North and Mill Station Road it’s been a good season, and he’d like see that a lack of funds doesn’t cause anybody a treeless Christmas.
“We could have used something other than June weather,” he said as the sun glowed Thursday, “but I’m not complaining.”
