Christmas Trees by Cambridge Boy Scouts
Some hardware stores have Christmas trees. Some supermarkets have wreaths. But, the Cambridge Boy Scouts have both. Once again, Boy Scout Troop 45 and Sea Scout ship 45 are selling Christmas trees and wreaths at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and Cameron Avenue in North Cambridge. They are located on the Bike Path to Davis Square. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 3-9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 10 p.m.
There is a wide selection of trees to choose from to fit every home and budget. So, whether you’re looking for short or tall, fat or skinny, they have them all. This is a great way to get your Christmas tree while also supporting a very worthwhile Cambridge youth program.
The Cambridge Boy Scouts are members of the Boston Minuteman Council, which serves communities throughout the Greater Boston area.
