Reporting on Christmas trees

On Sunday, I went to the Columbia Downtown Optimist Club’s Christmas tree lot. I don’t have much to say about this story other than it was a fun piece to work on because everyone I talked to was very helpful and friendly. It started out as a photo gallery, so the photos are beautiful. Shoutout the Missourian photographer, Pam. I then expanded on the photos by spending about two hours at the lot talking to volunteers and community members and then writing up a text story.

Here are some tweets with photo and video that I tweeted while reporting:
