OSWEGO, IL — The Village of Oswego is partnering with VetFest 141 to provide free live Christmas trees to Oswego’s veterans, first responders, frontline health care workers and their families.
Fifty trees are available on a first-come-first-served basis beginning Tuesday at the Oswego Public Works Facility, 100 Theodore Drive. Trees for distribution are located at the north end of the facility’s parking lot, and veterans, first responders and health care workers from Oswego and the surrounding area may visit the facility and pick up a tree on the honor system at any time.
The live 6-foot to 8-foot Fraiser Firs have been provided by VetFest 141 organizers Kevin Fialko
and Chris Skilnic.
“We are pleased to be able to honor the veterans of our community this holiday season,” Fialko
said. “We hope this gesture will serve as a small token of our gratitude for those who have
given so much.”
Village President Troy Parlier said this is a “fine example of the values of our Oswego community – coming together to support each other and honoring those who have served our country during this holiday season.”
