The annual Mitten Tree Gift Drive will kickoff this Tuesday with a 10:00 AM ceremony at the corner of Main St. and Route 31. This program is run by the Gasport Lions Club, Roy-Hart, and Absolut Care of Gasport.

If all holds true to what happened last year, here's the gameplan...

There will be an 8-ft. tall Christmas tree at the corner of Main St. and Route 31 on which will be placed cardboard mittens with the age and gender of needy Gasport kids. To help these kids have a wonderful Christmas, you are to take a mitten, buy a gift and then drop it off (unwrapped), with the mitten attached, at the Gasport elementary school or Absolut Care.
