‘Tis the Season…for Making Ornaments for the State Capitol Tree
For more than two decades, ornaments created 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 2019's tree.
Their goal is to again contribute hundreds of ornaments to this year's tree. To be included on the tree, DDS must receive all ornaments by Friday, November 8, 2019.
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 ceremony. The child will place one of the ornaments onto the tree during the ceremony with Governor Gavin Newsome and First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom.
