On Monday at the Executive Mansion in Richmond, First Lady Maureen McDonnell was presented with a 12-foot Fraser fir Christmas Tree from Joe Freeman of Mistletoe Meadows Tree Farm in Willis, Virginia.  The First Lady also received wreaths for the Executive Mansion from Sue Bostic of Joe’s Trees in Newport, Virginia. 

Mistletoe Meadows won the honor of providing the Governor's tree when the Virginia Christmas Tree Growers Association (VCTGA) selected Mr. Freeman’s tree as the 2010 Grand Champion in its annual competition.  Ms. Bostic was named VCTGA Grand Champion in the wreath-making category.  The tree and wreaths will be displayed in the Executive Mansion.
