When the tractor-trailer rolled into the parking lot on Thanksgiving night, the 550 trees and 200 wreaths had made a seven-hour trip down from Quebec. A few days later, a virtual army of residents came down to unload this precious cargo. Among the New Hyde Parkers pitching in were members of the New Hyde Park Fire Department, students and alumni of New Hyde Park Memorial High School, various New Hyde Park Lions and Boy Scout Troop 298 from New Hyde Park and Garden City Park. The occasion was the 50th Annual Christmas Tree Sale that was being spearheaded by the New Hyde Park Lions Club. Three hours later, this considerable task was completed and the Christmas tree lot was open for business. All trees are selling for $45 and as is the case with all Lions-related endeavors, sale proceeds will be donated to charity.

Simply because something has happened or reoccurred several times in the past does not make it a tradition, something to be expected maybe, or something habitual perhaps. Tradition is different. It evokes a feeling of long-standing preplanned positive experiences built in layers upon one another.
So it is, apparently, with the Highlander Wrestling program. Year after year, young men and women graduate from the high school program only to return again as alumni freely lending their expertise, assistance and support . . . giving back to those who have not yet entered the fraternity of Highlander Wrestling Graduates.
