Christmas in Afghanistan

(MARCUS)–A Marcus business and its customers are creating Christmas memories for those far from home.

Marie and Neal Bork of Country Pines Tree Farm have been part of the “Trees for Troops” National Christmas Tree Growers Association. Through the state group, they’ve donated home grown Christmas trees for soldiers serving in the military.

Marie Bork explains their donations are different this Christmas.

Three trees were mailed at the Cleghorn Post Office Tuesday, November 30th. At noon Sunday one of the soldiers in Aghanistan wrote by email that they’d arrived.
