Bill's Newscast: Christmas Trees for Sale

Christmas tree sales benefit local organizations.

A former Cottonwood Wal-Mart employee who is being called a hero is getting ready to graduate from the police academy.

Eric Fields, who worked in the Loss Prevention Department, was at the store when a brawl broke out on March 21st between Cottonwood Police officers and members of the Gaver family. Twenty-one year old Enoch Gaver was shot and killed by an officer. Fields fought off one of the attackers while 2 other men helped Sergeant Jeremy Daniels, who was shot in the leg. Fields, who received the Medal of Valor from police in April, applied and tested highly for the position of police officer. His graduation from the Northern Arizona Regional Training Academy (NARTA) Police Academy is set for tomorrow.

You can’t get a fresh cut Christmas tree from the Prescott National Forest, but the Prescott Valley Early Bird and Chino Valley Lions Clubs have some available.

The Prescott Valley Christmas Tree Lot is located in the Event Center parking lot at the corner of Florentine and Glassford Hill Roads. The lot is open from 4 to 7 pm weekdays and 10 to 7 on weekends. Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce Director and Lions Club Vice-President Marnie Uhl explains how proceeds from tree sales are used.

The Chino Valley High School Wrestling Team has helped unload more than 200 trees for the Lions Club.

The lot off Highway 89 is open from 2 to 6 Monday through Saturday and 10 to 6 Sundays until all trees are sold. The high school band plans on playing at the lot as often as it can. The annual tree sale is one of the largest fundraisers for both clubs.
