West Seattle holidays: Holy Rosary School Tree Lot now open daily, with special event Friday night

November 29, 2012 at 10:49 am | In Holidays, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

Big weekend ahead for Christmas-tree buying, since December is about to arrive. If you’ve ever wandered through a Christmas tree lot and wonder which tree type was which, here’s some help: At the Holy Rosary School Tree Lot (WSB sponsor) this year, there’s a special setup you can check out before you browse and buy. From left in the photo above – Norway Spruce, White Pine, Grand Fir, Douglas Fir, Turkish Fir, Noble Fir. This is the third year Holy Rosary has sold trees at 41st and Dakota, on the north side of its own campus (after many years at other locations), and students like Mia Presser have been visiting neighbors this week to get the word out that it’s tree time!

The doorhanger Mia’s holding (see it here, if you didn’t get one) reminds recipients not only of the location but also that part of the proceeds go again this year – 15 percent, to be specific – to West Seattle Food Bank, West Seattle Helpline, and the Salvation Army domestic-violence shelter Hickman House:

You also can bring food donations to the tree lot and drop them off. The Holy Rosary lot is open 4 pm-8 pm Mondays through Thursdays, 3 pm-9 pm Fridays, and 9 am-9 pm Saturdays and Sundays.

Along with the trees, you’ll find wreaths and garlands, too. In case you have any trouble finding them – though it’s barely a block off California – here’s a map. They’re open daily, with the aforementioned hours, through Sunday, December 16th – and tomorrow night, you’re invited to a special community event – the first ever Holy Rosary Tree Festival, 6-9 pm Friday (November 30th):

Invite your family and friends for festive treats, crafts/activities for the kids and a LOT of holiday cheer! A professional photographer will be there to take free digital family photos. THANK YOU to Filmateria Productions for providing the photographer.

  1. I’m curious about pricing, which I didn’t see on the website.

  2. The doorhanger has “from xx” ranges, if you follow that link. We used to publish tree-lot prices as a roundup for a couple years, but then discovered that the pricing tended to change, and the information quickly became outdated.

    If you come by, make sure to ask for a “door-hanger” with a $5 off coupon.
