Holiday Tree Sale at Miner ES

One of my favorite, most beloved traditions from 15 years living in Mount Pleasant was the Bancroft Elementary PTO Holiday Tree Sale. I didn't even really do the tree thing before moving to DC, but the school sale was obviously for a great cause and if I *did* buy a tree in December, it was only from Bancroft. This was one of many small, regular traditions I loathed to leave behind when moving across town.

The past (nearly) two years in Carver have seemingly flown by and I have a whole new set of neighborhood gems, quirks, and traditions to learn and am happy to add this one to the list:

The Miner Elementary Holiday Greenery & Bake Sale is this weekend. From the organizers:

​"Buy your holiday trees, wreaths, and garland while supporting the Miner Parent Teacher Organization at the same time! Our second annual Holiday Greenery and Bake Sale is here! 

Friday, December 1 from 5-8pm
Saturday, December 2nd from 9am-2pm

Pre-orders are closed now but we have plenty more in stock so show up to pick out your items.

We'll have baked goodies for sale too. (If you'd like to contribute items to sell, please sign up on the Volunteer page.)"

Miner is located at 601 15th St NE, just south of Starburst Plaza if you're walking from Carver Langston or H Street. It's walkable from DC Streetcar and the B2 bus is an option, too. Good luck Miner, and enjoy the weekend everyone!
February 2018, probably.
