Tree time

Gary Rice of Salem, who owns Christmas Trim-A-Tree Wonderland with his parents Dan and Sally, shows Lana and John Judy of Guilford Lake how to disassemble the flocked tree they just purchased. The Homestead Pools and Spas business has been converted into this wonderland each Christmas season since 1975, growing every year. National Small Business day is today, celebrating families like the Rices who have built and expanded their businesses over the years.
