The Camdenton Optimist Club and the Camdenton R-III FIRST LASER Robotics program are partnering this year to manage the Optimist's annual Christmas tree lot at Camdenton Walmart.

Walmart of Camdenton allows the Optimists to use the parking lot area in front of their lawn and garden center yearly for this fundraiser. This year, 100 percent of the profits of the tree sales will be given to the Camdenton R-III FIRST LASER Robotics program to purchase new equipment and to offset travel costs.

Stop by the lot to buy your tree (or trees) and support a great cause that inspires youth to become engaged in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects. The lot will open Friday, Nov. 24 and will run through Saturday, Dec. 23 - or as long as trees last.

On opening day, the Friday after Thanksgiving, the lot will be open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Then, hours will be 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturdays and 1-6 p.m. Sundays-Fridays.
