Amramp Oklahoma owner Tony Rainwater joins the Metro Oklahoma City area to welcome the “People’s Tree.” On Saturday, Nov. 19, Tinker Air Force Base will host the Capitol Christmas Tree during its cross-country tour en route to Washington D.C.
Amramp, America’s leading wheelchair ramp and mobility-solutions provider, is proud to be a part of the 2011 tour, enabling everyone of all abilities to participate in this national tradition.
Serving most of Oklahoma – from the borders of Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, and Kansas – Amramp Oklahoma has a fully stocked warehouse in Tulsa, installing wheelchair ramps and portability solutions generally within 48 hours.
Using the Amramp ramp system, visitors will find just the right spot to hang their ornament or place a note on the 2011 Capitol Christmas Tree, a 65-foot white fir. The Capitol Tree events will be fully accessible and ADA-compliant.
Every year since 1970, a different U.S. state has been chosen to provide the Capitol Christmas Tree, which is placed on the Western lawn of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.
This year, the special tree has a long way to travel, because the chosen state is on the opposite coast: California. As part of this year’s 20-city tour, the Capitol Christmas Tree will be stopping at Tinker Air Force Base, just outside Oklahoma City.
The tree was cut on Nov. 5 in Stanislaus National Forest in Northern California, and the tour started Nov. 8.
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 solution provider, is proud to ensure that everyone of all abilities can participate in this national tradition.
Be sure to visit the tree when it stops at Tinker Air Force Base near Oklahoma City on Nov. 19 and take part in this wonderful national tradition!
