BERLIN (AP) — Special Olympians from the Berlin area have created ornaments for New Hampshire's tree that will be part of the National Christmas display outside the White House this year.

The Androscoggin River Athletes of the Special Olympics-New Hampshire worked with sculptor and painter Andre Belanger and several artist assistants to make a dozen New Hampshire-inspired ornaments that include images of gifts, snowmen, winter landscapes and lots of snow

The 93rd annual National Christmas Tree Lighting will take place on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. New Hampshire's tree will be one of 56 trees - representing each U.S. state, territory and the District of Columbia - that will surround the National Christmas Tree.
