Crews for the West Point Water and Light and the entire city electric department worked tireless hours and in a quick manner to get the decorations up for city residents.
A few days later, the crews were taking children of the community up in the cityâ€™s bucket trucks to allow them to place ornaments on the communityâ€™s Christmas tree at Sally Kate Winters Park.
