U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Visits Raphine, Virginia, and Greeneville, Tennessee, Locations

TravelCenters of America is sponsoring the fuel for the cross-country journey of the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree. Saturday, the tree made a stop at our Petro location in Raphine, Virginia, also known as White's Travel Center.

The rain couldn't keep hundreds of community members away from coming out to celebrate. Local government officials were in attendance, church choirs sang carols and families decorated tree ornaments. People enjoyed food and hot cocoa while they signed the banner on the side of the truck. Santa also made an appearance!

The tree arrived in Washington D.C. early Monday morning.

The tree also made a stop to fuel up at our Davy Crockett Travel Center in Greeneville, Tennessee. More photos can be found on the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree's official Facebook page.
