Honoring Wisconsin's Veterans ~ 2014 Capitol Christmas Tree

 Each Christmas students of Wisconsin are asked to help decorate the Capitol Christmas tree. Each year the Capitol has a different theme. 2014 - Honoring Wisconsin's Veterans.
Our boys made up an ornament with my Grandpa Sam who served in WWII.

The boys received a nice photo of the Governor hanging up the ornament and a letter saying the following;

Thank You!
Thank you for your creative contributions to the 2014 Capitol Christmas Tree. It was fun to see your imaginative interpretations for this years's theme - Honoring Wisconsin's Veterans.
Wishing you all the best as you finish this school year.
Govenor Scott Walker

The boys really felt proud to receive a letter and photo of Great Grandpa honored in this way.

Merry Christmas
