A message from the President…
Summer in a Small Community…
Summer living in a small community is really a great part of life. I am sure we all hear from time to time people complain about not having all the perks of living in a larger city or a known tourist area. We have all heard that there is nothing to do, not as many options for shopping, or not enough restaurant options. I spent this past weekend in Tennessee and it was beautiful, but I kept thinking Carter Caves is just a beautiful as the Smokey Mountains. We have so much to offer in this area. We have beautiful parks, lakes, rivers, creeks, trails. Our community is full of friendly people who will go out of their way to help out. We have great local festivals, markets, music, and, artisans. We have locally owned retail and restaurant businesses that will go out of their way to provide the best experience for their customers.
Best of all we have hard working people in this community who work to provide all this for us. Even though it is always good to see something new or different or to get away from the day to day responsibilities for a little while, it does make you realize what all we have in our very own back door. We may be a small community but we have so much to offer not only to each other but to those coming into our community for a visit. I urge you to get out and see what all there is to do in our community. Take a mini vacation to your own community and see something you haven’t seen in a while or maybe find something new you didn’t know about.
-Kara Johnson, President
