Summertime in the North Carolina office of Friends of the Smokies is usually spent preparing for the Smokies Stomp Barn Party. But our desire to protect community health and wellbeing prevents us from gathering for this special evening. Please know that we deeply appreciate the support shown through the Smokies Stomp in years past – more than $140,000 raised for park projects. Even though we cannot join hands on the dance floor in 2020, there is still an opportunity to sustain the spirit of the event by giving to one of the park’s many needs. We look forward to better days ahead, and celebrating with you in 2021!
