Rain “iffy” for BREC meet
Everyone who registers at tonight’s annual meeting of the Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative at Pickens, as a door prize, will walk away with a door mat. Considering all of the rain we’ve been getting, perhaps Blue Ridge should be giving away umbrellas. Whether the area gets another shower seems to be an “iffy” proposition, depending on which forecaster you’re listening to, according to Blue Ridge’s Terry Ballenger. Rain or no rain, a large crowd is anticipated for entertainers Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys and Doyle Burton and the Silver Dollar Gang. Registration at tonight’s meeting will run until 7 o’clock.
