Sixth annual event stresses the importance of organ donation.
On Saturday, Jan. 19, the Mountain Mums Garden Club's Memorial Triangle will once again be in the spotlight with another 'Walk to Remember.' This year marks the sixth anniversary of our Memorial tree planting.

The Hwy. 78 Triangle has blossomed over the years with many more plantings and informative signs to commemorate our project. We are proud to honor these special children. This year's WTR is sponsored by The Metropolitan (an in-town business and arts district), Kroger, Promotional Advertising, Tucker House, the Garden Enthusiast, Pin-Centives, SRCA, Smoke Rise Agents and Donate Life sponsors Joe and Vicki…
