The Pembroke Kiwanis Club recently spread some holiday cheer while helping support the education of local young people. In an all-volunteer effort, the club each year sells Christmas trees and uses the proceeds to provide scholarships to Pembroke High School students. This year, the club sold more than 400 trees, raising enough money for four scholarships, Mike Suckow, the club’s president-elect, said in an interview. The trees, purchased from a grower in New Hampshire, were sold at the Pembroke Herring Run on Barker Street from Thanksgiving through last weekend. Assisting with the program were students from the high school’s Key Club, the local chapter of an international service organization for students affiliated with Kiwanis. The scholarships will be presented at the high school’s annual awards night next May. Applications are available in the school guidance department. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
