PINE GROVE – It was no joke or prank call, Levan Christmas Tree Farm, Pine Grove, was chosen to supply a fresh Christmas tree to the Governor’s Mansion in Harrisburg.
“We got a message Monday, Nov. 21 from a 717 phone number and the caller stated they were calling on behalf of the governor’s office about a Christmas tree,” said Linda Levan, who owns the tree farm on Spittler Road, with her husband Bill. “We thought it was a prank call because our family is known to do that stuff, chuckled Linda. We asked our daughter Pam, who is a teacher at Hegins-Hubley Elementary School to return the phone call for us.”
Pam returned the call and was excited to learn that a man who works maintenance and groundskeeping at the governor’s mansion suggested a Christmas tree from Levan Christmas Tree Farm in Pine Grove. Julie, a woman who works in the governor’s mansion said that Jodie has always been pleased with the trees he purchased there and that’s why he suggested them.
On Tuesday, two men from the governor’s office came to the farm and chose a 14’ Frasier tree. The tree was placed in the governor’s mansion and was to be used as the children’s tree and was adorned with ornaments made by children.
