A CHRISTMAS STORY
From The Place Where Santa Sleeps
MEMO: From Santa Christmas 2014
Let me tell you a true story that started 38 years ago and ends up right here at Clemsonville
Christmas Tree Farm.
It all began when brochures were placed in a supermarket in Gaithersburg, Maryland back
in 1976. A nice young man named Jim Lucey, then a secret service agent and now director
of security at the National Gallery of Art, picked up a brochure and came to Clemsonville
for his first REAL Christmas tree.
Now, and for the past 37 years, Jim and his growing entourage have gathered at Clemsonville
for their trees, wreaths and good times. No wonder his 50 or so followers call him “Mr.
Over the years many things have led the Lucey Group to keep coming back to Clemsonville's
250 acre farm. One reason might be the price of any tree at only $20.00. Another reason could
be the beautiful “Boulder Garden – Christmas Wonderland” or the “Nature Maze” along with
“America's Largest REAL Christmas Wreath.” Maybe it was me coming down the chimney or
the Guinness record breaking wreaths that caught their fancy. Whatever it was, we want you
to join them in the eternal search for the “Perfect Tree.”
Come to the beautiful Maryland Countryside on November 29, 2014 at 3:30 pm and be part of
“Jim's Group” or come visit us anytime after Thanksgiving until Christmas. Start your Christmas
Season here and make it like Jim Lucey's “A Clemsonville Tree...A Christmas Tradition.”
Come one and all!!!
P.S. Join us and the Lucey Group on their visit to the new “Jim Lucey Corner” in the Christmas
Barn where Jim and I plan to write our new book “FINDING THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS
