The mission of this fund raiser is to create a joyful and uplifting experience when our customers purchase their Christmas Trees and accessories at the Tree Lot.  It’s more than selling Christmas Trees and accessories!  It’s a venue to build a network of Mens Club relationships, evangelize our faith-collect food and clothing for the needy, and provide financial resources to fund some of our OLG School Athletic Field expenses and provide charitable donations to key Twin Cities charities.
