Rapid City Club for Boys kicks off annual Christmas tree sale

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Rapid City Club for Boys kicked off its annual Christmas tree sale on Saturday. This is the 38th year of the Christmas tree project, which raises funds for the club’s programs.

Hundreds of trees will be available, ranging in size from 4 feet to 12 feet. Visitors can expect a variety of tree types, including Ponderosa Pine and Black Hills Spruce.

According to the Assistant Director Mark Kline, “People might want to shop early. We have a lot fewer trees this year. There’s some pressure with getting trucks to come this way, and also, the costs have gone up.”

Particularly in demand are the taller trees, with only 100 trees over 9 feet available.

Each tree purchase goes to supporting the club and its members. The organization has been open since 1963 and is dedicated to providing a safe place for boys to learn and develop.

Its programs range from sports and outdoor activities to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) projects. The club has served over 39,000 boys over the years and prides itself on helping boys learn new skills while building self-esteem and character.

The Christmas tree sale will be happening Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at The Club for Boys lot on 320 N. 4th St.
