Come Make a Wish: Community Wish Tree in Basking Ridge Village
This year’s “2020 Vision Make a Wish Tree” in the front yard of Gerald York Opticians on Finley Avenue will be decorated with used eyeglasses, Snellen eye charts, and visitors’ Visions for the new year. The tree will be set up the same time the Basking Ridge Fire Department is decorating the town tree (Sat, Nov. 28 from 9:30-11:30). Drive by to support the Fire Company and help “Fill the Boot” and get a local business coupon book and free gift while supplies last.
For the entire holiday season, residents can stop by, donate a pair of used glasses to the tree, and write a 2021 vision/wish to hang on the tree for all to read.
Don’t worry if you don’t have glasses, Gerald York does!!!!! At this time, neither the Lions Club nor New Eyes for the Needy are collecting eyeglasses, but Mr. Local History will save any donated glasses until such time that we can donate safely.
