Trees may be collected from town homes by church volunteers driving pickup trucks for the suggested donation of $35. Checks for the tax-deductible donations may be made out to the Weston Warm-Up Fund and given to volunteer drivers when they pick up the trees.
For those dropping off their own tree, the suggested donation is $25 to be paid on-site. The church is located at 285 Lyons Plain Road in Weston.
The Epiphany tradition of burning Christmas trees dates back to Colonial times and Emmanuel Episcopal Church had started to do it again seven years ago.
Weston firefighters will be on hand to stack the trees, set and control the fire, and extinguish it completely. Free refreshments will be served in the parish hall.
For information or to schedule a tree pickup, call the church office at 203-227-8565 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For information about the Weston Warm-Up Fund, call Dawn Egan at 203-451-4964.
