The city of Rehoboth Beach started its search for the community Christmas tree for the downtown tree lighting and sing-along, set for Nov. 24 at the Rehoboth Bandstand.

The tree would be a 35- to 40-foot spruce or douglas fir. Those who think they may have the right tree and wish to donate it can call 227-2772 or email

Arrangements will be made to have the tree taken down and transported downtown, and the donor will receive special recognition during the tree lighting.
