I’ve certainly been staying busy with all of the activities around the County this season! Have you? I’ve been to several parades, events and Santa sightings. There is still lots to do before the Advent Season ends and Christmas begins so hold onto your Santa hats and get involved!
I want to make you aware of a request from Smoky Mountain Living. This is a note directly from Smoky Mountain Living: Smoky Mountain Living prominently features images from across the southern Appalachians in each edition. Photo essays adhere to the issue’s overall theme. The next edition of Smoky Mountain Living will focus on the theme “Adorn.” What decorations do you see—on people and on things—that turn the ordinary into the extraordinary? Send your images to firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 17, 2013. For more information, visit smliv.com.
