Jordan WC6J, led a group of volunteers to decorate one of the Christmas Trees along Highway 50 in Placerville.  You can find the tree at spot 59, behind the Powel Brother Steamers.  If you in Placerville go find our tree and take a picture.  If go by at night you will see it flashing a message in Morse Code.  Thanks to the group for decorating the tree.
