Ornaments sought for holiday tree in W.Va. mansion
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia first lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin is inviting artists from around the state to submit ornaments to be displayed on the holiday tree at the governor's mansion.
Officials say submitted ornaments will be featured in the 2013 Artistree catalog, and participating artists will be invited to a special celebration. Ornaments must be received no later than Nov. 15.
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says the ornaments are a reflection of the state's culture and history, and showcases the talent of artists from across West Virginia.
The Artistree will be unveiled in conjunction with Joyful Night, the annual holiday celebration at the State Capitol complex on Dec. 3.
