Chilean officials to light tree

HARRISBURG – Gov. Ed Rendell, two top-ranking Chilean government officials and three Pennsylvania companies that played pivotal roles in the Chilean mine rescue will help to light the Capitol Christmas tree at noon today in the state Capitol’s Main Rotunda.

This year’s tree-lighting program will recognize the efforts of the Pennsylvania companies and Chilean officials who worked together to rescue 33 miners in Chile who were trapped underground in early August, according to Rendell’s office.
