SALISBURY – Rowan County 4-H clubs are taking orders for the ninth annual Christmas wreath fundraiser. This year, Rowan County 4-H is selling fraser fir wreaths and boxwood wreaths. Wreaths are standard door size and are made by a small, family-owned and operated Christmas tree farm in Alleghany County. A fresh wreath that is cared for properly will be a joy to its owners for a month or more. It is not only beautiful, but its fragrance is amazing!
The wreaths are stored to maintain freshness and delivered to buyers as soon as possible. Wreaths will be available for pickup on Tuesday, Dec. 4 at the Agricultural Center, 2727 Old Concord Road, from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.
To order, contact a local 4-H club member or call the Rowan County Cooperative Extension Office at 704-216-8970. The cost of each wreath is $20, and you must order your wreath by Friday, Nov. 16. Support Rowan County 4-H youth by purchasing a beautiful fraser fir wreath or boxwood wreath today.
