There's nothing quite like the smell of a crisp, fresh pine tree at Christmas, twinkling with lights and hanging with baubles. Thanks to the Lunenburg County Christmas Tree Producer's Association, three local Nova Scotia charities will be able to brighten the atmosphere for those who pass through their doors using their services this time of year.
Three evergreens were presented at Province House to Lieutenant-Governor Mayann E. Francis, Premier Darrell Dexter and Natural Resources Minister Charlie Parker who each donated a tree to charity. New Leaf Enterprises, an organization helping people with disabilities develop their job skills, Home of the Guardian Angel, a single parent support centre, and Metro Turning Point men's shelter all received a tree. Haligonia's Ryan Gannon was there to catch the presentations.
