GAFFNEY — Over 800 students at three local elementary schools got an interesting lesson in electrical safety on Wednesday, March 8.

Using magic tricks and comedy to hold the student’s attention, magician Chris Dixon presented his “Making Accidents Disappear” program. The program teaches students to be aware of their surroundings, especially when electric wires and appliances are nearby. This is the fifth year that the show has been sponsored by Broad River Electric Cooperative to perform for local students. The show was “on tour” this year, performing at Fairforest Elementary in Spartanburg, Carlisle Foster’s Grove Elementary in Chesnee, and Jonesville Elementary/Middle in Jonesville.

“There is no performing art that is more universally loved among children than magic. I was excited that Broad River Electric has again decided to sponsor this program. Teaching electrical safety in a way that is memorable and fun for the students is a real passion of mine,” Dixon noted.

“At Broad River, we’re totally committed to doing everything in our power to prevent accidents and promote safety among children in our community,” said Josh Crotzer, Manager of Community Development at Broad River Electric Cooperative.

Broad River Electric Cooperative is a non-profit, member-owned distribution cooperative providing services to more than 20,000 members in Cherokee, Spartanburg Union and Newberry counties in South Carolina and Cleveland, Polk and Rutherford counties in North Carolina in order to improve the quality of their lives.
