Cross lit on Tryon Peak for 50 seasons

Published 3:30 pm Tuesday, December 9, 2008

The Polk County Junior Chamber of Commerce first lit the cross in 1958 and then, in the 1960s, turned it over to the Columbus Lions. Thus, the tradition continues into its fifth decade.

This Christmas season, the Lions ask that contributions be made in honor or memory of people who have touched lives in a special way. The person honored or the family of the person remembered will receive a custom card of acknowledgment. One hundred percent of the money received will be used for cross expenses and Lions service programs.

Contributions can be mailed to Columbus Lions Club, P.O. Box 121, Columbus, N.C. 28722.
