Deck the Halls in Alexandria

Tree sale raises funds for summer youth camp.

The Alexandria Police Foundation held its annual Christmas Tree sale to raise funds for the Alexandria Police Youth Camp.

“We have a lot of ornaments so we are looking for a tree with sturdy branches,” said Jeff Anderson, who was shopping for a tree Dec. 17 with his wife Margot and children Julie and John. “But it can’t be too thick since we need space for the ornaments.”

Proceeds from the sale, held on Callahan Drive outside Alexandria’s Union Station, help sponsor kids to attend the Alexandria Police Youth summer camp in Kilmarnock, Va.

“I want a big tree,” said Julie, while John added, “I want a really tall one.”
