Killington-Pico Rotary wants your undressed trees

Sunday, Jan. 13, 5 p.m.—KILLINGTON— The Killington-Pico Rotary Club will be hosting its fourth annual bonfire on Sunday, Jan. 13, from 5-8 p.m. behind Dream Makers Bakers (formerly the Pasta Pot) at 5501 U.S. Route 4. Get there by 5 p.m. to be part of the torch relay and official lighting at 5:15 p.m. This yearly event is a place for friends to get together after the holidays.

For a $10 suggested donation, you can toss your Christmas tree into the pile for burning. There will be food and a cash bar available. All the event proceeds go to supporting the Killington-Pico Rotary Club, Vermont Adaptive, and Vermont Special Olympics. To add to the fun atmosphere there will be a DJ with music and giveaways.

Drop off trees behind Dream Maker Bakers during business hours (Tuesday-Sunday, 7 a.m.-2 p.m.). Leave trees with the big pile in back; and leave a cash or check in the donation jar at the counter of Dream Maker Bakers. Need help unloading the tree? Please bring a friend to help, as staff will be busy baking.

Pick up service may be available for those that cannot drop them off. Email Vince at to check availability for pickup.

A huge bonfire was lit to dispose of Christmas trees, a fundraiser for the Killington-Pico Rotary Club, who also sold the trees earlier in the season.
