Chipping trees by donation this weekend on Jim Robson Way

Ridge Meadows Search and Rescue is chipping Christmas trees by donation this weekend.

The trees can be dropped at their hall at 23598 105 Ave., and they are chipping just off Jim Robson Way, beside Planet Ice. They will be taking trees from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 12 and 13.

They can chip about 500 trees in a day, and receive donations of anywhere from $2 to $20. They will be using the funds to buy jackets and other gear for the team.

Thanks to sponsorship by Bartlett Tree Experts, it is an good fundraiser for the local rescue team.
