Will the trees, etc., be in different store fronts to view? Curious how this will work?

We are so excited to be DOWNTOWN STERLING. Country Store is at 2 E. 3rd St. (old essex building) and Champs Banquet Venue will house our friendship trees and some of our large trees! After a meeting tomorrow, we will have a better idea on where everything will be located. 🙂 We also hope to have a map for everyone. We are really excited to be downtown!

YAY!

Awesome!

YEAH!!!!!
