Aledo Times Record
The Exchange Club of Aledo was fortunate to have seven Mercer County High School students assist with the unloading, tagging, unwrapping and displaying of their Christmas trees on Saturday morning, November 21, 2020.  Front (left to right)---Kierstin Benson, Anna Wagner, and Katie Wagner.  Back (left to right) Collin Lininger, Robbie Holtschlag, Carson Holmes, and Gage Lager.  These young volunteers made a big impact on Exchange's community project.
The Exchange Club of Aledo has displayed and sold Christmas trees as a community project since 1956.  This year, the trees arrived from Plover, WI at 7:30 AM on Saturday, November 21, 2020.  Club members and high school students from MCHS posed for a picture prior to the unloading of the 156 balsam fir, Fraser fir, and white pine trees.  Profits from the project are used to support many youth, community, and veteran activities in the area.
