Sanibel Fire Lieutenant John Dimaria and firemen Adam Felix and Rob Wilkins assisted the Sanibel Captiva Lions Club on Friday, Nov. 22, in unloading 206 premium Fraser firs for the Lions annual Christmas tree sales. The Lions express their heartfelt appreciation for the firemen’s assistance and to Chief Matthew Scott for making them available. Their helped reduced the sore muscles for “old guys” who are not used to this type of activity.

The Lions tree sales take place next to the Island Cinema in the Bailey Center. The “tree lot” is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesday through Sunday and trees will remain on sale through Sunday, Dec. 22 or until all the trees are sold.

The Sanibel Captiva Lions meet on the first and third Wednesday of the month with a guest speaker once a month at the Sanibel Community House. Meetings begin at 6 p.m. with cocktails and appetizers and dinner at 7 pm. Visiting Lions and anyone interested in becoming a member are welcome to attend.
