For the last eight years, Hensler Nursery in Hamlet has graciously donated trees to Indiana’s capitol. This year, Lt. Governor Becky Skillman recognized their commitment by presenting forest John Scheetz of the nursery with the “Partner in Progress Award,” as he presented the eight-foot Fraser Fir Christmas tree to her office.
Skillman also recognized the Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association, thanking them for their service and commitment to Indiana for bringing real Christmas trees to the Capitol for all the years she has served as Lt. Governor.
Skillman commented on how much the real Christmas trees meant to not only her, but her staff as well, throughout the eight years she has been in office. She said the building is always busy throughout the holidays, and the tree is admired by everyone who visits her office.
