Local Trees to be on Display at the Capitol this Christmas

The Fewell family of Winfield has donated its 25-foot Blue Spruce as one of three trees that will be used for holiday displays this year at the state Capitol Complex in Charleston. The tree has become too big for their yard, so they called the state and it became a candidate to light up the Capitol at Christmas. State Department of Administration spokeswoman Diane Holley-Brown said the Fewells' tree would be used around the north fountain at the Capitol. The other two trees came from Crickmer Farms in the Fayette County. Almost half of the farm's 70 acres is dedicated to Christmas trees, and any family can go there to cut down a tree of their own. A lighting ceremony will be held Dec. 6 at hte State Capitol as part of the annual Joyful Night celebration.
