Gerrit Strathmeyer, president of Strathmeyer Christmas Trees said, “You’ll see the thank yous that the troops have sent where they basically say it’s like bringing a piece of home once they smell that real Christmas tree, and it brings back memories of being at home with mom and dad and friends, family and then celebrating Christmas.”

The company president says he wants to get 200 trees from the York Fairgrounds lot out to the troops.
