Hensler’s cuts annual Statehouse tree

The Pilot News

Hensler's Statehouse Christmas Tree“A Christmastime atmosphere will fill the air at the Statehouse Rotunda as a magnificent Concolor Fir is moved into the building, bringing with it the citrusy aroma of the holidays.

This glorious tree, which stands roughly 25 feet tall, is a testament to the skill and care of the growers at Hensler Nursery, Inc. in Hamlet.

In addition to providing the tree for the Statehouse, they will also be presenting Lt. Governor Becky Skill-man with an 8-foot Fraser Fir.

Hensler Nursery has been providing the Statehouse Rotunda with trees for the holidays for more than 15 years, and they have been presenting the Lt. Governor with trees as well for many years.
“It’s an honor for the Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association to have access to Statehouse officials, to be able to bring real trees into the Capitol building, and to be able to promote a real locally grown Indiana product. It’s really special that they will allow us to do that, and we enjoy the publicity and the contact we have with Indiana officials,” said Hensler President John Hensler.”

Santa Parade Kicks off the 2010 Christmas Fest

Christmas Fest began this year just the way we like it- with a parade!

Santa cruised into Hensler’s by fire truck and Mrs. Claus was escorted to the festivities by horse-drawn carriage. Thanks to the Knox, Hamlet and Koontz Lake fire departments for their participation.

Adding to the excitement was our favorite radio station, WKVI, who conducted a live broadcast on our tree lot. We’d also like to give a shout out to the Knox High School Tomahawk Jazz Ensemble. Thanks for providing a wonderful musical score to our festivities!
