Amramp North Carolina owner Rick Griffiths celebrates Thanksgiving alongside the ‘People’s Tree’ in Greensboro


Posted on November 18, 2011

Join Amramp North Carolina this Thanksgiving by taking part in the Capitol Christmas Tree tour when it stops in Greensboro, N.C., on Thursday, Nov. 24.

The tree will be placed near Greensboro’s outdoor skating rink, and visitors can decorate the tree with an ornament or a note, joining residents of 20 communities on the “People’s Tree” national tour.  Piedmont residents and visitors alike are invited to see the 65-foot white fir in Greensboro’s Price Bryan Performance Place at Festival Park.

Every year since 1970, a different U.S. state has been chosen to provide the Capitol Christmas Tree, which will be placed on the Western lawn of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.  While this year’s tree was selected in California, North Carolina twice has gifted the Capitol Tree from Pisgah National Forest: a 50-foot Fraser fir in 1998 and the same species in 1974 at 41 feet.[SM1] 

The United States Forestry Division carefully chooses candidates from a national forest within a different state each year, and the Architect of the Capitol then picks the “winner” from the group.

At each Capitol Tree event across the country, attendees will climb a ramp to access the platform where they can leave a note or an ornament. By providing ADA-compliant ramps, Amramp, America’s leading wheelchair ramp and mobility solutions provider, is proud to ensure that everyone of all abilities can participate in this national tradition.

Serving Western North Carolina – from the borders of Tennessee, South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia –Amramp North Carolina has a fully stocked warehouse in Charlotte, installing wheelchair ramps and portability solutions generally within 48 hours.
