2017 State Capitol Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony
DDS is accepting ornaments for the State Capitol Tree
Posted Date: 9/7/2017
The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) is inviting regional centers, developmental centers and community art programs to send ornaments to  Sacramento for the State Capitol Tree. There is a tree lighting ceremony that takes place the first or second week of December. This year, as in previous years, a child with a developmental disability will participate in the televised ceremony. The child will place one of the ornaments onto the tree during the ceremony with Governor Brown and First Lady Anne Gust Brown.

Community art programs may send ornaments directly to DDS by November 10th. Be sure to include the shipping form that is included with the guidelines. 

Any other regional center consumers may send ornaments to NLACRC and we will ship them to DDS. Ornaments must be received at the NLACRC Chatsworth no later than November 3rd.

Please be sure to read the guidelines below for details and more information:
