submitted photo

The new official 2013 official Louisiana Capitol Christmas ornament will recognize a native threatened species that has made a remarkable recovery (and the work to assist that recovery.) LA House Speaker Chuck Kleckley unveiled the official Christmas ornament of the Capitol – the Louisiana Black Bear, today. Joining the Speaker were key figures in working to protect the Louisiana Black Bear: Public Service Commissioner and former state senator, Foster Campbell; Executive Director of the Black Bear Conservation Coalition Paul Davidson.; and Rep. Sam Jones–D and Sen. Bret Allain-R, both from Franklin, LA, home of the Black Bear Festival. The unveiling took place in the Member’s lounge adjacent to the House chamber.

Proceeds from the sale of the ornament go to the Louisiana Capitol Foundation, which was created to assist in the preservation of the Louisiana State Capitol and its historical furnishings.  The general public may order ornaments from LA Capitol Foundation, 225-342-0642.
