‘Tis the Season…for Making Ornaments for the State Capitol Tree
For 21 years, ornaments made by persons with developmental disabilities have adorned the State Capitol Tree, and the Department of Developmental Services has put out the request for ornaments for 2018's tree.
Their goal is to contribute 800 ornaments to this year's tree. To be included on the tree, DDS must receive all ornaments by Friday, November 9.
The tree lighting ceremony will take place the first 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 Jerry Brown and First Lady Anne Gust Brown.
