Town honors one of its own

Family, friends and co-workers of the late Thomas G. ‘Tommy’ McRary gather Tuesday afternoon for the renaming dedication of the town’s water plant.

McRary worked for the town of Blowing Rock at the water plant for more than 30 years before passing away suddenly last December.

Blowing Rock Mayor J.B. Lawrence presented McRary’s widow, Debbie, with a plaque commemorating the renaming and McRary’s service to the town.

"Tommy was a beloved member of the Blowing Rock family and we miss him every day," Lawrence said.

The Blowing Rock Thomas G. McRary Water Plant is located on U.S. 321 near the Blue Ridge Parkway.
