Becky Bostic Perkins was introduced as the 75th Alleghany Highlands Christmas Mother during a Christmas Mother Reveal luncheon, Wednesday, at the Alleghany Highlands Industrial Heritage and Technology’s Discovery Center, Covington.
After lunch from James Burke House, Mary Asma, 2022 Christmas Mother, introduced Perkins. “I’m absolutely thrilled that Becky was chosen to be the 75th Christmas Mother, I think that she will do a fantastic job,” said Asma as she presented Perkins with a gift.
“I am certainly humbled and honored to serve as your 75th Christmas Mother,” began Perkins. She had told “God that she was ready to do something else for him and she felt like she needed another project.” “Little did I know that I would be the Christmas Mother,” said Perkins.
Perkins, who has worked with the Christmas Program over the years, in some capacity, shared that her theme is: God Bless Them, Everyone. Before taking questions, she closed her talking points by sharing a poem, that she had written, with the large audience of former Christmas Mothers. “Thank you all for the opportunity,” said Perkins in closing.
Applications will be taken, in person, in Clifton Forge and Covington, the week of Oct. 16th and the Christmas Mother Shop will open Nov. 27th at Christ United Methodist Church, 200 E Fudge St., Covington. Donations can be mailed to Highlands Christmas Mother, PO Box 242, Covington, VA 24426. Additional information can be found on the Alleghany Highlands Christmas Mother’s Facebook page. Upcoming dates will be published by local media.
Perkins is well-known in the community. She is the former owner of Kut’n Up Salon and is very active in her church. Perkins has been married to Wayne for 43 years and they have one son, Ben, and four grandchildren.
