The United Methodist Men would like to thank all those who supported the 2022 Tree Lot season either by volunteering or buying trees. For the 2022 season, 1500 trees were sold in 3 weeks, raising $72,000 to support the community. At the end of March, several checks were distributed to agencies in the community that were generated by the proceeds from the Tree Lot sales.
