You may think it’s a bit early to start thinking about Christmas Trees, but Christmas will be here before you know it! Why not pre-order your tree now and relieve some of the heavy spendings in December?

Available for sale will be standard floor sizes from 5 to 9 feet high which can be pre-ordered online now.

Civitan has chosen to sell #1 Select Trees for the best quality.  They are consistent in conical shape, not less than medium density, and with minor defects.

You have the option of pre-ordering your tree or purchasing it at our tree lot during sales hours.  *We offer free delivery for those who need it to your home in Winterville.  We will contact you for a delivery date and time.  If your tree was pre-ordered, you may come to the lot to select your own tree…just bring your receipt with you.  Our members will trim the base and help secure the tree to your vehicle.

The Winterville Civitan is a non-profit organization that supports your local community.  We have given over $100,000 toward projects in the City of Winterville.  On an international level, Civitan is devoted to improving the lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities.  This focus began in the 1950s when Civitan funded some of the first special education training for school teachers.  That commitment continues today through local and international efforts such as summer camps, vocational programs, special Olympic Games and cutting-edge research, therapies and clinical services at the Civitan International Research Center. 



Claxton Fruitcake

Each year during the holiday season, for over half a century Civitans have been selling Claxton Fruitcake to fund various community service projects. Today, local Civitan Clubs work with area grocery retailers to continue to bring Claxton fruitcake to the community and fund local service projects. 

Claxton Fruitcakes are available now and can be purchased from any Civitan member, or at these store locations:

CVS, Kroger, and Publix 

For questions about Claxton Fruitcake, or if you are a business that would like to sell them, please contact Steve Rice: 706.742.7475
