Jackson EMC: Lighting Up Your Holidays

Jackson EMC employees came together from across the company to create a magical experience for children and adults with its Christmas parade floats. More than 100 employees participated in all aspects of the project, from building to riding the floats, from gathering candy to finding elf costumes and decorations. Parades began in Braselton in mid-November and continued into December with festivities in Clermont, Jefferson, Commerce and Gainesville.
