HOLIDAY ORNAMENTS SUPPORT CAPITOL PRESERVATION
The speaker of the Texas House of Representatives has asked the League to inform its members about the availability of Texas Capitol Ornaments. In celebration of fifteen years of Capitol preservation and education projects, the State Preservation Board is pleased to introduce the 2010 Capitol Ornament, which is the fifteenth in a series of annual collectible ornaments. More than $5 million has been generated through the sale of the ornaments to support ongoing Capitol conservation and maintenance programs, including public education about the building, its contents, and the historic Capitol grounds. For example, the current Capitol Dome Project, scheduled to be completed in time for the holidays, will ensure that the building is durable enough to withstand the harsh Texas weather.
The cost for each 3 inch x 3 inch ornament is $18.00. That cost includes an elegant velour-lined gift box, along with a brochure about the ornament program. Mail orders can be sent to:
