Donations begin to come in for Fraser fir lighting fund9:47 am | September 25, 2012
Can you believe it’s only three months until Christmas? But, the official kick-off to the holiday season is even closer — Nov. 13, when the Fraser fir will be lighted.
That leaves only about six weeks to raise the funds to buy new lights and wiring for the grand old Christmas tree, which stands at the east end of Elk Avenue in front of the Carter County U-T Extension Office.
Extension Agent Keith Hart said $3,000 is needed to replace the wiring and buy new LED lights for the tree.
