CHEMUNG COUNTY, NY (WENY) -- Chemung County's oldest charity is on the hunt for the Christmas tree that will serve as the centerpiece for this year's annual broadcast.

The Arctic League is taking submissions of trees for consideration. Only evergreen trees that are 10 to 12 feet tall, and located in Chemung County will be considered. The selected tree will be cut down and taken to the Clemens Center, where it will be decorated and included in the Arctic League's annual broadcast on Sunday, November 27th. The owner o the tree will be acknowledged during the event.

Tree nominations must be made by November 11th. If you have a tree you would like the Arctic League to consider, please contact Tom Seem at 202-253-3207, or email [email protected] The Arctic League Broadcast Committee will review the nominated trees on November 14th. 

The Arctic League raises money to provide Christmas gifts to children across Chemung County. The gifts are delivered by volunteers across the county ahead of Christmas morning.
