Gilbert Brambila throws his weight behind a chain saw as he prepares a Christmas tree for sale at the Ojai Valley Lions Club Christmas tree lot. This year's tree lot is a joint venture between the Ojai Valley Lions Club and the Ojai Valley Chamber of Commerce, and all proceeds will benefit local schools and nonprofit organizations. The lot is at 987 W. Ojai Ave., in the Janelle Interiors parking lot — formerly the Ford dealership. Hours are 2 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday through Dec. 20 (or until sold out). See www.ojaivalleylionsclub.com for more information.
