DDS Accepting Ornaments for State Capitol Tree

The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) is inviting regional centers, developmental centers, and community art programs to send ornaments to Sacramento for the State Capitol tree. There is a tree lighting ceremony that takes place the first or second week of December. This year, as in previous years, a child with a developmental disability will participate in the televised ceremony. The child will place one of the ornaments onto the tree during the ceremony with Governor Brown and First Lady Anne Gust Brown.

Community art programs may send ornaments directly to DDS by November 10, 2017. Be sure to include the shipping form that is included with the guidelines.

Any other regional center clients and families, deliver your ornaments to the Koch-Young Resource Center at Lanterman Regional Center by November 3, 2017, and we will ship them to DDS.
