Governor Jan Brewer Lights Capitol Christmas Tree

PHOENIX – Governor Jan Brewer yesterday participated in the 2012 Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in the Executive Tower lobby at the Arizona State Capitol.
On display is a 20-foot White Fir from the Tonto National Forest. This is the second consecutive year in which the Governor has celebrated Christmas with a LIVE Christmas tree in the Capitol lobby.
The tree is decorated with 2,240 LED lights and 220 hand-designed ornaments. In commemoration of Arizona’s centennial holidays, the Christmas Tree is adorned with ornaments that were decorated by children from Centennial Elementary School (Gilbert), Centennial Elementary School (Tucson), Yuma Centennial Middle School (Yuma) and Centennial High School (Peoria). A youth choir from John F. Long Elementary School, in Phoenix, joined Governor Brewer for today’s tree-lighting ceremony.
Lastly, hanging from the Executive Tower lobby are 15 Christmas wreaths – decorated with unique ornaments designed and donated by each of Arizona’s 15 counties.
Governor Brewer wishes to thank Crown Import, Southwest Ornaments, the County Supervisors’ Association, the “Centennial schools” and everyone else who had a hand in making this year’s Capitol Christmas display possible.
