For years, employees of Luminant have enjoyed an annual picnic where they can bring their families together and enjoy some down time off the job. This year, they did something just as memorable, but much more important. In light of the major wildfires that affected our area last summer and fall, they volunteered to give up their picnic this year and donate the money they would have spent on it to area volunteer fire departments throughout Luminant’s service area. Members of Lexington’s Volunteer Fire Department are seen above, accepting a $600 donation from the Luminant employees. Pictured are Jarrett Ahrendt, Michael Milburn, Derek Schumpert, Ace Blankenburg, Allen Retzlaff, Jim Stanley (Luminant) Don Milburn, Trey Bell, Christina Simcik, Daniel Green, Rodney Qualls, Tommy Hart, Johnny Kubicak, and Monroe Schneider.
