Mateo DeVargas and Clay Englund of Charles Turina Circle 4669 in Astoria help a customer with her Christmas tree purchase during a sale co-sponsored by the Squires and by William J. Leahy Council 1307. Squires cut down the trees from a local farm, hauled them to St. Mary, Star of the Sea Church and sold them over two weekends. The tree sales netted $1,060 to help with the council's Coats for Kids program.
