Caine decorates 50 foot tree for Christmas

Caine decorates 50 foot tree for ChristmasThis tree belongs to Norman Caine and family who live at 4116 Gunnels Road. Norman is 80 years young and wanted to decorate a tree this year like no other. He chose a 50 foot cedar that sits in front of his home and hopes to share this bit of holiday cheer with other residents of the county. He thinks that, perhaps, he has the tallest decorated tree this year. With the help of his son, Chip, and a rented boom lift, his wish to light up the county was possible. Merry Christmas to Pickett County from our house to yours!
