Tree auction to raise money for Greene Historical Society

GREENE – The Greene Historical Society is holding a silent Christmas tree auction which they hope will help encourage shoppers to shop locally this holiday season as well as raise money for their organization.



The auction, which will run through Friday, Dec. 11, is intended to help elongate the village’s Hometown Holiday Weekend, which takes place this weekend, explained Sharon Davis, vice president of the historical society.

“By sponsoring trees in the businesses, we are hoping to spread out the holiday trend to more than just a weekend celebration,” she said. “Placing the trees in businesses will promote local shopping as well.”

According to Davis, each of the pre-lit tree 3 or 4-foot trees has been sponsored by a local business or organization and are uniquely decorated in a variety of themes.
