Members of the Trail Smoke Eaters put their brawn to good use early Tuesday morning by helping the Kiwanis unload hundreds of Christmas trees, including this 18-footer, they hauled into Butler Park. (Front to back) Tyler Ghiradosi, Daine Dubois, and director of hockey operations Craig Clare. The annual Kiwanis Christmas tree fundraiser begins Friday at the East Trail park. Hours are Monday to Thursday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday until 8 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Money raised helps support over 30 charities and non-profit organizations in Greater Trail, and is dispersed in bursaries to many of the area’s graduating students.
