HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ -- Santa Claus paid an early visit to Hasbrouck Heights when he stopped by the Hasbrouck Heights Men's Association's annual Christmas Tree Sale on Saturday.
Santa welcomed parents and children to the lot on the corner of Terrace and Franklin Avenues. He listened to children's gift wishes and posed for photos.
The community group took delivery of the trees last Saturday. According to Steve Palladino, president, they sold 150 trees from Friday through Sunday. The group has 80 trees left in stock.
The HHMA is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization that raises money for college scholarships for graduating seniors, who are looking to further their education. They award scholarships to Hasbrouck Heights High School seniors at the annual ceremony in early June. The annual Christmas tree sale is one of the main fundraisers. Other events include a spring golf outing in May and assistance with the Hasbrouck Heights 5K race. The group is open to men, 18 years and older. The group meets the third Wednesday of each month at the VFW. Regular meetings will resume again in January. For additional information, visit the group's Facebook page.
It will be open on Saturdays and Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Monday through Friday, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
