A Tree that Stands Out in Martinsburg

By Lloy and Betty Blattenberger

Each of the bright lights is a globe that has 100 lights. I think I have 58 of them but when I walk around the tree trying to count them I always fall down from looking up that high and getting dizzy. There are about 20 strands of 200 LED’s in between the globes. John Bolger loaned me his extension ladder which I laid against the tree to climb. Mike Barroner the tree trimmer gave me the inspiration to attempt it and God gave me the courage to climb up and down alot.

This tree can be seen on Sunset Drive by Ritchey’s Dairy. It’s definitely worth a trip to see it!
