Five Friends of the Smokies will speak at the REI in Charlotte on Thursday June 14.

Fresh from their successful performance at REI in Asheville, they have retweaked  their presentation to fit the Charlotte audience.

Gracia Slater, Sharon McCarthy and I will talk about our favorite hikes and why we hiked all the trail in the Smokies – Smokies 900M. We’ll show slides of our favorite spots in the Park.

Holly Demuth and Hannah Epperson work for Friends of the Smokies and will talk about the serious stuff such as all the great projects that Friends of the Smokies fund. They’ll also explain the situation with our full-color license plate. Where is the North Carolina legislature on letting this successful program continue?

So why REI? Because they invited us. Because they felt it was important to have their customers hear our story. This program is free but you have to register. And they’re quite serious about that.

So go to their site and register. Only a few spots left. See you there.
