Three chapters from our Pacific Southwestern Region recently participated in the Annual U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree project. As part of this project, our Channel Islands, Long Beach, and Threaded Needle chapters contributed ornaments to be displayed on the companion trees that are displayed in the various buildings in Washington D.C.
The Capitol trees come from a different state National Forest every year. The 2021 tree came from the Six Rivers National Forest in Northern California.
Channel Islands Chapter – “We did not stitch ours due to the time crunch and the chance that they could end up hanging on the large tree outside, but we had a lot of fun making them and we’re happy to be helping with the decorations.” – Reported by Michelle Baylis, Channel Islands Chapter President
Threaded Needle Chapter – “Sadly – I don’t have any photos with our stitchers holding the ornaments but here they are. The photo with tree ornaments, shows three ornaments donated from the family of one of our members that died right about the time we were preparing for this. They all represent the greater LA/San Diego area where she lived.” Reported by Jan Woolsey, TNC Region Representative
