Above: Last year, the SFA’s trees looked quite festive. But it’s probably easier to pick one up before any snow squalls hit. (images cropped from Facebook in 2019 & 2018) 

Southborough Firefighter’s Association is continuing its over 50 year tradition of selling Christmas trees. Trees will be sold out of the golf course parking lot behind the public safety building at 32 Cordaville Road.

The sale starts this Saturday (November 28) and runs until their trees sell out. Hours are 9:00 am – 9:00 pm on weekends and weekday evenings from 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm.

Due to the pandemic, the firefighters need to follow different safety guidelines this year. The only bad news is that they can’t tie the trees onto vehicle roofs. The good news includes that if you live in town, they can deliver it for you (for an extra $10 on specific days)

Proceeds from the sale benefit the Southborough Firefighters Association.

Here are the posted safety rules:
πŸŽ„Everyone must wear a mask while selecting and purchasing trees
πŸŽ„We will *NOT* be allowed to tie trees onto vehicles this year because it requires that we enter the vehicle
πŸŽ„We will be offering a delivery option for Southborough residents only (driveway drop off) for an additional $10 on specific days which are TBD
πŸŽ„There will be an option to pay electronically
πŸŽ„Our staff will be diligently cleaning and sanitizing surfaces each day
We always appreciate your support, especially during this most unusual year!
Updated (11/24/20 12:22 pm): A commenter was asking if he would be allowed to tie a tree onto his own vehicle’s roof. The answer was yes.

I have a roof rack. Can I tie the tree on the car myself??

I called to confirm. The answer was yes.

If you are capable of doing it yourself, that’s fine. It’s just a service they had done for people in the past that they aren’t able to do this year.

Do you know what days they are doing drop offs?
