With cooler weather in the forecast for next week and Christmas less than 70 days away, now is the time to start preparing.

The N.C. Cooperative Extension, Rowan County Center, is hosting its yearly wreath sale. We have an amazing assortment of items to pick from. All are made by Pardue Tree Farm and Nursery, which is a small family-owned and operated Christmas tree farm in Alleghany County.

A fresh wreath that is cared for properly will be enjoyed for a month or more. Not only are the wreaths beautiful to look at, but the fragrance is amazing, also.

Twelve-inch boxwood and Fraser fir wreaths are available. There is also a 24-inch Fraser fir and a 20-boxwood. Also available are Christmas stars, Christmas crosses, square wreaths, boxwood and Fraser fir kissing balls, peace signs and triple mix wreaths.

If you are interested in garland, we have white pine available in 25 feet, 50 feet and 75 feet.

These wreaths are handmade and fresh when you pick them up. Pickup will be on Thursday, Nov. 30 at the Agricultural Center, 2727 Old Concord Road,from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

To order or receive information on pricing, call the Rowan County Center at 704-216-8970. The deadline to order is Nov. 15.
