We would like to offer our sincere thanks to the Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative and their generous sponsors. Even though Blue Ridge Fest had to be canceled again this year because of uncertainty about the COVID pandemic, the sponsors came through in a big way, and Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative presented us with a total of $9,000 to support the work we do in the community. 11 other charities in the Blue Ridge service area were also presented with checks, which were presented at a luncheon (thanks, Chick-fil-A for the delicious food!) on Tuesday. Pictured are Blue Ridge employees and representatives of the charities selected to receive grants this year. Jane and Mike Harlin (4th and 5th from the left in the picture) represented Golden Corner Food Pantry.
