MEDFORD, Wis. (AP) -- A balsam fir from Medford will grace the lawn at the State Capitol this holiday season.

The 37-foot tree was selected from Meyer's Castle Tree Farm last week and is on its way to the Capitol Wednesday.

Fourth-graders from Medford Elementary and Stetsonville Elementary schools have been invited to sing at the tree lighting ceremony in Madison Nov. 30.
