Is This Thing On?

tree done Is This Thing On?ALBANY—It seemed the only people working at the Capitol on Black Friday were crews from the Office of General Services stringing lights around the state's official holiday tree.

According to a press release, the tree is a 30-foot blue donated by Arlene Blasen of Latham. The lights are LEDs which use less electricity than normal.

The Tree will be lit formally on December 7.
