On November 27, 2009, the First Lady, Michelle Obama was presented with the Official White House Christmas Tree, which this year came from Shepherdstown, West Virginia. The 18 ½ ft Douglas-fir arrived on our traditional horse drawn carriage to the North Portico. The tree will be on display in the Blue Room throughout the holiday season.

The whole Harmon family who attend these presentations think this is a great way to start the Holiday Season...Always Impressive.

The Sunbacks, in their eighties, have won the honor of presenting the tree to The White
House four times-the most of any members of The National Christmas Tree Association.
