The Week In Review-The Weekend Ahead

A Very Sparky Christmas

X Sparky

Last week the O.C. Post-Sentinel helped introduce the world to Sparky, the 90-year-old Christmas tree salesman. Since then multiple news outlets have reported on Sparky, he sold out of Christmas trees and volunteers have dropped off food and other items. Sparky’s luck continued to improve this week when members of the company East Coast Industrial Services in Pine Bush stopped by his Blanche Avenue home to present him with $500. Sparky, a World War II veteran whose real name is Ellsworth Wayman, is saving up to buy a new car after his was totaled in a recent accident. Sparky is seen here, holding the donation he received, with Laurie and Jay Presutti of ECIS, company employees and Town of Newburgh Councilman James Presutti. (photo by Mark Gerlach)
