Official Christmas tree
December 1, 2009

Employees from the Missouri Department of Conservation, the Office of Administration and volunteers stand ready to secure a giant Norway spruce to the lawn of the Governor's Mansion as it is lowered by a crane on Dec. 1, 2009. The tree, donated by Jim Weber of Centralia, will serve as one of two official Christmas trees at the Governor's Mansion during the 2009 holiday season. Nearly 30 feet tall, the tree will be decorated with traditional white lights and will stand on the Mansion's south lawn.download
