This year the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area had an exceptional annual meeting, our “Gather ‘Round the Blue Ridge”. It was an amazing gathering of organizations, businesses and people dedicated to celebrating and preserving the rich history and diverse heritage found in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. We are so grateful for all of the support we receive throughout WNC each year. Without our friends and partners we could not accomplish all of our goals. We look forward to many more years of successful collaboration and to the continued preservations and celebration of our beloved region. Please continue to help us educate visitors and residents alike about the incredible heritage we have surrounding us every day in Western North Carolina.
Here are some photos from the event, taken by Sally Biggers, Black Mountain Digital Media. Enjoy!
