SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Elementary school students will be joining Utah's Gov. Gary Herbert and first lady Jeanette Herbert in decorating their mansion for Christmas.
Third and fourth graders from Salt Lake City's Woodrow Wilson Elementary School are set to help decorate a Christmas tree in the mansion library Thursday morning. They'll also be performing a skit and singing Christmas carols.
The first lady selects a theme for the mansion each holiday season, and community organizations help decorate it.
The mansion was built in 1902 by mining magnate and U.S. Sen. Thomas Kearns and his wife, Jennie. It was donated to the state in 1937.
