BELMONT — Friends of Belmont Football is currently hosting its inaugural Christmas Tree Sale at the Gates Farm at 445 Laconia Road ( Route 106 near Country Kitchen Bread Outlet) in Belmont. Members of the non-profit organization will be selling trees from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the weekends and from 4 to 7 p.m. during the week. The sale will continue through Dec. 14, as supplies allow.
All proceeds from Christmas tree sales will go toward the effort of making high school football a reality for Belmont student-athletes. The organization is currently striving to fund raise toward the goal of creating a cooperative team with Gilford.
Belmont 8th graders who played for Gilford Silver Hawks contributed to an 8 and 2 season this year and experienced a championship win with a perfect record last season. These players are greatful for the experience they had with their Gilford team mates.
These 8th graders can not play next year unless Belmont High School can form a cooperative team.
