Canned Food Christmas Tree

On the Road, Trivia
on May 17, 2009

A friendly competition between squadrons at Hill Air Force Base, south of Ogden (pop. 77,226), resulted in the creation of a 14-foot Christmas tree made completely of donated cans of food. Decorated with other food items, toys and clothing, the tree was created by the 523rd Electronics Maintenance Group and won the “most creative” award in the base’s annual competition. The more than 2,200 items used to create the tree were donated to local charities for the 2008 holidays.
