Location change may end up costing band students

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Eisenhower High School's band program's Christmas tree sales are down this year.
The annual sale raises money for the band program to allow the students to take part in several competitions and events.

Because of construction at Ike, the tree lot had to be moved to Wilson Middle School, and that's why organizers think they're having a tough time selling.

"It's a little slow more than likely because of the new location. But we have signs up on Tieton and Nob Hill and the reader board at the high school has it on there," said Al Colter, president of the Band Parents Association.

So far they've only sold about 300 trees, that's down from a typical sale.

The lot is open from 3 to 9pm on weekdays, and 9am to 9pm on weekends.

It's located at Wilson Middle School on 44th Avenue.
