Senator Tester extends year-end salutations

Montana Senator Jon Tester sent this greeting from Big Sandy.

Merry Christmas!

Thousands of folks from across the state spent the last year working to bring a piece of Montana to Washington D.C.

The U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree, which traveled more than 3,500 miles from Yaak, Montana to our Nation’s Capital, was grown, harvested, and transported by Montanans.

I then had the honor of helping Bozeman sixth-grader Ridley Brandmayr light the beautiful 79-foot Engelmann Spruce on the Capitol Lawn.

Lit up – it made for a breathtaking view. Adorned with thousands of ornaments, flanked by a huge quilted skirt, and topped with a bright copper star—all made in Montana.

Every time I saw that tree I thought about being back in Big Sky Country for Christmas. It’s good to finally be here.

From the bottom of my heart, Sharla and I wish you a very happy holiday and a healthy New Year!
