Trees for Troops at Stokoe Farms

Posted at: 11/20/2012 9:04 AM

Nearly 50 Christmas trees from Stokoe Farms will soon be in the air and headed to Afghanistan, Kuwait, Korea, Germany and Gitmo.

This is the fourth year for the Trees for Troops program which sends real Christmas trees to military personnel serving overseas.

Local students and senior citizens made ornaments, cards and candy to be shipped with each tree.

Stokoe Farms says it can send 48 trees thanks to generosity of local farm guests, local American Legions and Auxiliary’s and the Chili Senior Center.

The trees leave Rochester at 9 a.m. Wednesday.
