The Girl Scouts are still selling Christmas trees at the Willard Dye garage, but they want to get the bulk of their patrons taken care of Saturday as that is the only full day they can devote to the project. Of course, some of the girls will be there Friday afternoon in case any trees are wanted at that time. The trees are getting pretty well picked over so the girls suggest that those wanting trees get them as soon as possible.
