All orders and money for the wreaths must be in no later than Monday, November 1. The Sun City Center Lions Club is once again taking orders for their annual live Christmas Wreath sale. This year the wreaths are more beautiful than years before. They are made of an aromatic mix of noble fir, berried juniper, incense cedar, and come with a red velvet water repellant bow. If you hang your wreath in your house, it will remind you of the old time Christmas with stockings hanging by the fire place and cookies baking in the kitchen. The 22" wreaths are $26 each and the 28" wreaths are $36. In addition, you can also order a wreath to be direct shipped to a love one or friends -- prices vary and your local Lion will be able to help you. The wreaths are shipped from Washington state in a refrigerated truck and will arrive the week after Thanksgiving, so you will have plenty of time to enjoy. We know you would love to have one of these beautiful wreaths in your home. Please help the Lions by purchasing a wreath for your holiday.
