At a time where there's a shortage of Christmas Trees and the prices have been going way up, this is perfect to make sure your family is ready for Christmas.  No gimmicks and no catch on this.  Free Christmas Trees on Saturday only.

We're not talking about five, ten or twenty trees going out.  Washington Trust Bank is doing their part to make sure as many families as possible can bring that Christmas spirit into their home this year with a fresh, real Christmas Tree and they don't want you to worry about how much it is.

So here's how to get your tree.  Starting at 12 Noon on Saturday, December 9 free trees will go out to the first 50 families in line at the Hopkin's Tree Farm Christmas Tree Lot at 1813 Nampa Caldwell Blvd.

You are welcome to show up as early as possible to lock up your place in line because once the 50 trees are gone, they're gone.  Hopkins will of course have others you can purchase but we had to stop it somewhere so 50 is the number we came up with.

Rick and Carly will be there live with games and other freebies and the Washington Trust Bank crew will be on hand with free hot beverages to keep you warm and toasty while you pick out that perfect tree.

Remember to get to the Hopkin's Tree Farm early because only the first 50 families receive that FREE tree.

Happy holidays from everyone at Washington Trust Bank!
