Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversation on everything from fall foliage to home renovation. I don’t know about y’all, but it has been a super busy week. I don’t know if I am coming or going or even what day of the week it is! Thank goodness, my Google calendar reminds me where I need to be and when *wink* Today on the blog, we are chatting about the ribbon cutting ceremony that took place in the charming town of Jonesborough. I would like to give a big thanks to Abby of the Vintage Inspired Passionista and Sixteen & Successful for taking photos and notes at today’s event at Boone Street Market. I was in a meeting in Johnson City at the same time the ribbon cutting was taking place–and as much as I would like to be in two or more places at once…*wishful thinking…sigh…smile*
Boone Street Market is a partnership between the town of Jonesborough and Jonesborough Locally Grown (JLG), which is a nonprofit whose goal is to promote local food and farmers. The Boone Street Market is a year-round, “nonprofit market run for the benefit of its customers and growers. It will be staffed by a paid manager and an assistant, plus volunteers” (http://jfmstore.blogspot.com/p/about-boone-street-market.html).
Thanks for sitting a spell with me today as we chatted about the Ribbon Cutting of the Boone Street Market–which is more than a ribbon cutting…it is a story of how hard work, dedication, passion, and a town working together can bring about positive change and growth. I think we could use more positive and inspiring stories like this *smile*
