Thank You – Tree Sale

Congratulations on an awesome tree sale!

Many thanks to Dave Pezzini, new band superhero (Head of the tree sale by day/ treasurer by night). He led the tree sale and managed a truck delay and snowstorm until the last tree was sold this morning. And all with a smile! You deserve a break!

Behind Dave was a group of dedicated volunteers and alumni parents who spent hours preparing, selling and cleaning up. Thank you to the students who showed up at 7 or much earlier Saturday to get the trees off of the absent truck. You were very patient and I know very tired. We couldn’t do it without you. Thanks to the people who got up on Sunday and said let’s go back to help.

A special shout-out to our new publicity maven, Karolyn Ormond, who stirred the Melrose public into a frenzy on social media over the trees being scooped up at an amazing pace. If you are not on these pages, let’s just say people have been posting pictures of their trees with “best tree ever” and “well worth waiting for the truck to arrive” notes.

If you have more pictures, please put them up on flickr from the band website.

Job well done!
