PCW sponsors U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Project

Dec. 8, 2010 – Power Company of Wyoming LLC was one of several Wyoming companies that sponsored this year’s U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree, which was presented to Congress as a gift from the State of Wyoming.

For the first time in history,  Wyoming had the opportunity to provide a Christmas tree to be displayed on the west front lawn of the U.S. Capitol. After the 67-foot tree was  selected from the Bridger-Teton National Forest, it made a “whistle stop” tour throughout Wyoming – including spending the night of Nov. 12 in Rawlins – before arriving in Washington, D.C.  A tree-lighting ceremony was held there Dec. 7. With a theme of “Wyoming: Forever West,” the tree was decorated with thousands of ornaments made by citizens of Wyoming.

“For the past three years, people all around Wyoming committed their time and effort on behalf of this project. From the time the tree was selected in the forest until it was finally lighted in Washington, thousands of residents across our state did all they could do to make it a shining success,” wrote U.S. Senator John Barrasso, Wyoming, in a Dec. 8 message about the Christmas tree.
