Volunteers to decorate Capitol Christmas display

PIERRE - More than 90 Christmas trees are expected to be decorated at the South Dakota Capitol as part of the annual holiday display.

Volunteers will decorate the trees over the weekend in preparation for a lighting ceremony next Tuesday evening. The theme of this year's decorations is "125 Years of Christmas in South Dakota."

This year's specially featured tree is a 37-foot blue spruce donated by Brandon residents Gus and Joan Rysavy.

The tree can be viewed from Nov. 25 through Dec. 27 from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
