The tree that will stand in front of the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C.  this holiday season will make a stop in Greeley on Monday, November 12th. However the time has been changed for the event. It is now 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Representatives from the Greeley Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Development Authority and City of Greeley plan to welcome the tree with music, proclamations and gift giving just outside the Union Colony Civic Center.

School children are invited to create weather resistant, outdoor-themed tree ornaments which will hang on the tree outside the Union Colony Civic Center. The event will also serve as a collection point for toy and gift donations for Santa Cops.

In early November, the 2012 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree will be harvested on the Blanco Ranger District of the White River National Forest near Meeker, Colo. The tree will then be wrapped and transported on a custom-decorated Mack Pinnacle model truck driven by former U.S. Senator, Ben Nighthorse Campbell. The truck will transport the tree more than 3,000 miles over the course of 23 days.
