More than 100 ornaments were made during Cabela’s Ladies Day Event. During the event Cabela’s customers participated in a storewide scavenger hunt, where they answered question about products and questions about participating community partners. Questions about the Capitol Christmas Tree included what year did the U.S. Forest Service begin providing the Capitol Christmas Tree and how many stars were located on the Capitol Christmas Tree logo.
Chugach Children’s Forest youth coordinated and led ornament making that highlighted a design from Heather Floyd, one of the 2015 Capitol Christmas Tree Ornament contest winners. Youth coordination was made possible through a grant from the Alaska Humanities Forum.
