MCH to the Capitol

Over the holidays, some of our youth had a unique opportunity to tour the Capitol building in Austin. Twenty representatives from Methodist Children's Home made the trip. Russell Devorsky, chief of staff for State Representative Jim Dunnam, arranged the tour. Devorsky even hired a limousine to drive the youth to and from the Capitol.

During their tour, MCH youth and staff were able to view state artifacts and see the Methodist Children's Home ornament on the Lone Star Celebration Christmas Tree. The tree features one ornament from each legislative district in Texas. Methodist Children's Home was selected to create the ornament for District 57. We were honored to be included!

For most of the attending staff and residents, the highlight of the trip was a privileged climb to the very top of the Capitol steeple. Fewer than 100 people have been allowed to view the steeple in the last decade! MCH would like to send a special thank you to Mr. Devorsky for making this trip possible!

Please enjoy the following photos from their trip.
