Snoqualmie Tribe to plant new Capitol tree at casino

Members of the Snoqualmie Tribe will commemorate the tribe’s sponsorship this year of the Capitol Christmas tree with a tree-planting and blessing ceremony at noon, Saturday, Dec. 21, at the Snoqualmie Casino.

The tribe was the largest single financial sponsor of the project to bring a holiday tree to the nation’s capitol. The Capitol Christmas Tree this year is an Engelmann spruce from the Colville National Forest in eastern Washington. As part of the commemoration, members will plant a seedling Engelmann spruce at the casino in a public ceremony open to all.
