The Kansas governor's official residence is being decked out in Christmas finery, and the public can get a glimpse when Cedar Crest opens for holiday tours next week.
Gov. Sam Brownback and his family planned to be at Cedar Crest on Wednesday for the scheduled delivery of a Scotch pine Christmas tree by horse-drawn wagon. Also being delivered by wagon was a Douglas fir, to be displayed at Brownback's office in the Statehouse.
The Kansas Tree Growers Association presents the Christmas trees to the governor each year.
Beginning next week, Cedar Crest will be open for public tours each Monday afternoon and by appointment on Tuesdays through the holiday season.
