Active duty Soldiers and family members will receive one free live Christmas Tree, courtesy of MWR's Outdoor Recreation and the FedEx Trees For Troops program, Dec 12 at Wetherby Field. There will be more than 800 trees available, but each family will receive only one. You must present a military ID to pick your tree. Distribution will take place between 10:30am and 6pm. As always, we will have a team of elves dressed as Soldiers to help tote that tree to your car. In the event of inclement weather, we'll keep you updates on Facebook at BenningFMWRfans.
After you get the tree upright and decorated, join us for the annual Santa at Riverside celebration on the lawn of Riverside, the home of Fort Benning's commanding general. From 5-8pm, your children can visit with Santa, share their wish lists, enjoy entertainment, refreshments, games, prizes and more. As always, this event is free and fun for the whole family. Riverside is located at the corner of Vibbert and Lumpkin on Main Post.
