PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - In the heat of the summer, a committee is working on hosting a November stopover in Paducah for a Christmas tree on its way to Washington, D.C.

The Paducah Sun (https://bit.ly/29Nf4iA) reports Paducah will be the only planned stop in Kentucky for the U.S. Capitol Christmas tree, which will originate from Idaho’s Payette National Forest.

Spokeswoman Jan Bush of the U.S. Forest Service at Land Between the Lakes says the committee wants to showcase Paducah as much as it can during the Nov. 22 event.

The committee includes representatives of the Forest Service, the Paducah Convention and Visitors Bureau, the city’s parks department and other volunteers.
