Lions wraps up annual tree sale

By David Richards

She wouldn't have it any other way.

For decades, Ann Hemmah, co-owner of Otto's Bakery, has centered her family's holiday season around a real Christmas tree.

This year's selection was an eight-foot Canaan, a cross between Balsam and Fraser fir trees, and came directly from Byron's tree lot that's set up each year by the area's Lions Club.

The Lions sold out of its entire stock of 220 trees for 2012. The sale was held from just before Thanksgiving to the middle of December at Otto's.

"The Lions Club of Byron would like to give a big thank you to the community and the surrounding areas," Hemmah said, who is also a board member.

The Lions have been selling trees in Byron for the past 11 years, with the profits staying in the community by way of scholarships and funding Lions projects, such as the sponsorship of the outdoor ice rink.

For Hemmah, having a real tree each year is a given.

"We've never had anything but a fresh tree," she said.

This past Saturday, Lions members picked up dozens of trees at various houses in Byron. With a purchase of a tree, as long as they live in the city limits, customers receive the option of free tree disposal.
