Trees for Troops kicks off at Bethlehem tree farm
BETHLEHEM - The governor's husband, Tom Hassan, felled a New Hampshire Christmas tree on Dec. 1 to mark the start of the holiday season and to draw attention to Trees for Troops, a program that provides free Christmas trees to military families.
The inaugural holiday tree was cut at the Rocks Estate Christmas Tree Farm. Local volunteers and school children also helped to load a truck with Trees for Troops for distribution.
In addition to Mr. Hassan, the event drew Commissioner of Agriculture Lorraine Merrill and Executive Councilor Joseph Kenney.
