Johnny had the honor of flipping the light switch with House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) to light the Capitol Christmas Tree during a ceremony on the West Lawn of the US Capitol on Tuesday, December 6, 2011. Brusseau delivered the 63 foot Sierra white fir from California's Stanislaus National Forest to Washington D.C. a few days earlier, following a 20-day tour across the country, a trip of 4,300 miles.
