For the past 9 years The Dees’ Nursery & Florist has joined forces with DHL, Adelis International Security and many members of the local community to ship live Christmas Trees, Menorah’s, lights, decorations and holiday greeting cards from local school children to the brave men and women of The United States Armed Forces serving in Afghanistan.
Join us on Monday December 3rd at 10am at Dees Nursery in Oceanside for the big sendoff. The trees, which are grown on The Dees' own Christmas Tree Farm in the state of Maine, will get a police escort from the Nassau County Police Dept, NYPD and other local police to JFK where they will be loaded onto a waiting DHL 757 aircraft. From there DHL will fly them to the middle east so the US Military can enjoy the holidays while so far from home. There will be many members of the military on hand as well as numerous veterans. This is a great way for you to say hello and show your appreciation for their bravery and commitment to the United States of America.
