Celebrating Western North Carolina

Have I mentioned how much I love Bill and Donna Fisk?

On Thursday, April 5th at 10:30 AM, we're going to be having a ceremony at Milepost 412 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, where it intersects with US 276. We'll be honoring at least four Cool Cities in western North Carolina- Asheville, Brevard, Canton, and Highlands.

Mayor Smathers of Canton and Mayor Harris of Brevard recently co-wrote a letter that went to all the other Mayors in the western part of the state asking them to join us at the ceremony and sign onto the agreement. If you live in one of those communities, please consider contacting your Mayor.

The public is invited to this exciting occasion, and we hope to see a lot of folks Sierrans and non-Sierrans alike out there.

So what does this have to do with Bill and Donna? They went up to scope out the site yesterday and sent me a bunch of pictures. It doesn't have much in the way of facilities, but it's strikingly beautiful- and the ceremony shouldn't last too, too long anyway.

Hope to see a bunch of folks out on the 5th- and thanks Bill and Donna for going the extra mile(s) to help out with this!

  1. Too bad that the Mayors of Durham, Chapel Hill, and Hillsborough don't go to round out the NC cool cities participants. Are there any other cities that have signed on in NC?

    If you happen to have a digital audio recorder why not record the presentations and I'll host them on the http://H2Opodcast.com project.
