Boy Scout Troop 36 has been selling Christmas trees in the CVS parking lot on Calle Real for decades. Troop alum help continue the tradition by buying trees for their own families each year. “I enjoy describing each of the trees [to customers] and all the directions for caring for them,” said Frankie Doyle (second from right), while standing with fellow scouts (from left) Nikhil Ograin, Luke Wagner, and Lucas Aigner. The proceeds from the tree sales allow the scouts to take trips and participate in activities throughout the coming year.
