LocalLions Club tree lot opensDec. 3, 2013Photo providedCaptionDave Stryker (left) and Phil Nielsen, members of Waterman Lions Club, set up Christmas trees on the lot next to the bank in downtown Waterman. The trees arrived Nov. 24 and went on sale right after Thanksgiving. Others helping set up the trees were Leonard Johnson, Warren Sommerfeld, Dale Gaston, Nathan Rice, Bob Bend and Nic Watgen. Income from tree sales helps fund college scholarships and other activities for Waterman-area children, as well as sight and hearing conservation efforts of Lions Clubs International, and local community projects such as ballpark fencing.
