Kaleidoscope Farms once again a part of Operation Evergreen
On Sunday, Nov. 8 at 2:00 Kaleidoscope Farms once again held a ceremony for the selection of the trees that will be shipped to troops stationed overseas.
“Each year we like to work with our local veterans who come to the farm to pick out some trees to help bring a little bit of Christmas to our troops serving overseas,” said Dave Reese, owner of Kaleidoscope Farms near Mt. Cory. “We want to do just a little something for those who do so much for all of us.”
Operation Evergreen was developed by Ohio Christmas Tree Association members in 1995 to bring Christmas cheer to military units serving overseas. This year Kaleidoscope Farms will be sending four of the more than 300 Ohio Christmas trees to troops.
In addition to the trees, schools and community organizations make a mountain of ornaments to decorate for Christmas that make the trip overseas.
