PICKENS — The public is invited to join Blue Ridge Electric employees and their families at 5:15 p.m. Nov. 24 for the annual lighting of the Blue Ridge Electric Christmas tree. The ceremony will take place on the front lawn of the Co-op’s office at 734 W. Main St. in Pickens.
Alvin Henderson, a veteran of World War II and recipient of the South Carolina POW Award, will light the tree, following a short meditation by the Rev. Guy Roberts of Concord Baptist Church. Music will also be provided by Concord Baptist. Cookies and hot chocolate will be served immediately after the tree lighting.
“Please join us during this special celebration that marks the beginning of the holiday season,” said Charles Dalton, Blue Ridge Electric president and CEO. “Bringing family and friends together for this long-standing tradition is always a special time. We invite you to come and share in this community heritage event.”
