When, where and how to get the Fry Lodge Christmas tree is usually the source of much debate among the Fry Family Quartet. This year we went back and forth between every option – from going to a tree farm off-island, to buying a 4H tree at the grocery store, to cutting down a tree on our own property. The options paralyzed us. Until today, when Kristine noticed a message on LopezRocks.org from somebody offering free trees for people willing to cut and take them away. So that’s what we did. The time between cut-down and stand-up was less than 20 minutes. The kids hung ornaments after school, and just like that Fry Lodge is in the Christmas spirit!
