Hensler Nursery hosted a Cardinal bus tour of 58 local residents who were interested in receiving a private tour of the nursery on November 1st. John Hensler and John Scheetz provided the group with a first look at the 24-foot Douglas Fir tree headed to the State House Capitol building in December. Visitors were greeted by Mrs. Claus and taken on a tram tour which included stops at seedling and transplant growing areas, and a visit to the adjoining tree field to observe Christmas trees being shaken and bailed for wholesale shipment.

Visitors were also able to view the newly-decorated Christmas Barn, wreath decorating building, and visit with resident reindeer Angel and Rudy.

WKVI Radio in Knox, Indiana sponsored the tour.
