The Traveling Tree House bus will be parked at a new location in the Alexandria area each day of the week - all you need to do is: 1) Find the Traveling Tree House, 2) Stop and take a picture with it, and 3) Upload your picture to the United Way of Douglas & Pope Counties Facebook page, or e-mail it to Tabitha at
