Dominion Power Donates To Rebuild High Knob Tower
They powers at Dominion donated $15,000 to rebuild the tower and challenged other businesses to do the same. From The Coalfield Progress
ST. PAUL — A $15,000 corporate donation from Dominion Virginia Power yesterday kicked off major fundraising efforts to build a new High Knob observation tower.
Meeting at the site of the planned Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center, officials behind the rebuilding efforts joined Dominion representatives for the check presentation.
Noting that the check represents the largest donation to date, High Knob Tower Task Force member Rita McReynolds said she hopes other businesses in the coalfield region will follow suit.
“(High Knob tower) is a local landmark, and we’re thrilled that we’re going to be able to rebuild thanks to efforts from leaders like Dominion,” she said.
Dominion representatives challenged others in the business community to join them in helping fund the rebuilding efforts.
“We hope this will provide the spark for other businesses to donate to this great initiative,” said Dominion government affairs representative James Beazley. “Today is the day we’re going to step up, because we’re very proud to be a part of this community.”
No word on how much those Green Groups or the Bristol Herald Courier have donated. You know...They care so much about the area.
