ORLAND PARK LIONS CLUB OFFERS TWO TYPES OF TREES

Balsam fir

Balsam fir resist drying and can stay fresh for many weeks. Their needles sport two colors on top and bottom, adding shades of silver to your dark green Christmas tree. Occurring in the northeastern U.S. from Minnesota to Maine, as well as a lot more territory in eastern and central Canada. Balsam pines were the only tree whose branches could accommodate candles. One drawback: The branches are a bit more flexible than the Fraser, so keep the ornaments light. Luckily, they retain their splendor, fragrance, and needles arguably just as well.

Fraser fir

Fraser have strong branches, and grow very straight. They have excellent color. Their symmetrical form and attractive foliage have made the Fraser a very popular Christmas tree. The most popular Christmas tree species in the country these days, the Fraser fir is actually a subspecies of the balsam fir, though they don't grow in the same places. Fraser firs grow naturally in high altitudes in the southeastern Appalachian Mountains parts of Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. These branches are better suited for the heavier ornaments.


When selecting the perfect Christmas tree, choose one that will fit best in your home. Measure the spot for your tree before you go out shopping and keep those numbers close at hand. After you select an area in your home, measure the distance from your floor to the roof, along with the width of the space.

If you're looking for a live tree, check the limbs to make sure they are nice and green. Also, look for any brown needles, which may be a sign of a tree that has not been freshly cut. A tree that is too dry could be a fire hazard, so watch out for any signs of needle loss or other symptoms of a damaged tree. You will want to choose one that looks healthy and full with beautiful branches, which will look festive when decorated. If you're planning to load the tree onto your car, place a protective sheet down on the top before adding the tree. This will protect your car from scratches, or sap, on the way home.

QUEEN OF HEARTS RAFFLE

Visit our host Paddy-B's to enjoy a night out and support your home town club every Friday @ 8 PM located at 11969 West 143rd St. Orland Park 60462

Playing the Queen of Hearts Raffle

A Queen of Hearts manufactured raffle board has been developed specifically for this Raffle Game. The board has 54 sealed numbered positions. Under the sealed positions and randomly placed the manufacturer has concealed a deck of poker cards with 2 Jokers. When you purchase a raffle ticket, you retain half and fill out the required info and chosen card position on the other half and return. Your returned half will then be placed in a tumbler that will be used for mixing that week’s raffle tickets. Every Friday @    8 pm one raffle tickets will be removed from the tumbler and the position written on the raffle ticket will be revealed. If it is the Queen of Hearts, then that raffle ticket holder wins the Grand Prize. In any case, all the old raffle tickets are disposed of and a new game begins for the following Friday where the entire process is repeated.
