Supply Chain Grinch Goes on a Disappearing Christmas Tree Spree

Supply Chain Grinch Goes on a Disappearing Christmas Tree Spree

BALLSTON SPA — An annual tradition has been hoodwinked by the Supply Chain Grinch, leaving The Rotary Club of Ballston Spa in quite a pinch. 

For nearly 50 years, the Club has spread an abundance of cheer, selling Christmas trees locally that families hold dear. But thanks to dear COVID’s lingering stink, the Supply Chain Grinch made 600 trees disappear in a blink! 

“We’re sad to see the Grinch pull this dastardly ploy – but we won’t let him steal our holiday joy,” said Doug Ford, Rotarian, and Vice President of Sales and Purchasing at Curtis Lumber. 

While the trees may be in short supply, the good tidings of Christmas will never run dry. But the Club still needs our support – the fundraising cannot come up too short! 

“100% of funds that we raise go back to the community in a variety of ways,” said Ford. “From summer lunches to school backpacks, the Rotarians are proud to always give back.” 

To help the community, we ask for your unity – to take part in this virtual tree giving opportunity. Pick a tree from three sizes – any size will do – and your donation will ensure the Grinch’s tricks are nothing but a hullabaloo. 

“To the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce, we thank you for helping us keep our promise,” said Ford. “Together, we’ll do our part to keep the Christmas spirit in each and everyone’s heart.”
