Every year, the Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association presents their real trees to the top officials in the state, and this year is no different. Hensler Nursery in Hamlet will be bringing a freshly-cut 26-foot Concolor Fir to the Statehouse Rotunda, alongside an eight-foot Fraser Fir for the office of Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman.
Kankakee Valley REMC was excited to once again give their assistance to Hensler Nursery with the task of cutting and loading the tree. KVREMC agreed to provide a bucket truck and digger truck, along with skilled operators, to assist in the felling of the tree and transportation.
This year’s KVREMC volunteers included linemen Ron Mann, Darrin Keehn, and Scott Sikora, along with lineman and Energy Advisor Darrell Marks.
KVREMC Marketing Director Amanda Steeb said it was excited to see Hensler Nursery – a member of KVREMC – honored in the statehouse. This is the seventh year that KVREMC has assisted the grower in loading the tree for delivery, and Steeb said each year KVREMC crews are excited to take part in assisting the local community organization.
The trees were presented yesterday morning at 9 a.m. in the governor’s office.
