Happy Holidays!

The holiday season is a special time of the year, and Linda and I are proud to host the 33rd Annual Christmas at the Capitol. The theme for 2013 is Christmas in the Great Outdoors.

This year’s celebration will highlight nearly 100 trees decorated by businesses, nonprofit organizations, communities, and government offices throughout the state.

The South Dakota tree in the rotunda was decorated by the Department of Game, Fish & Parks. The 38-foot blue spruce was donated by Brandon residents Cassandra and Brandon Deffenbaugh, and was trimmed to fit in the Capitol.

We invite you to visit the Capitol in Pierre and enjoy this beautiful display. Linda and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a safe and joyous holiday season.


Dennis and Linda Daugaard
