This was a very humbling experience for which we are grateful: from getting to know the Norris family a little better to organizing this gig with Sinking Creek neighbors to the “cozy crowd with kind pocketbooks” who came out to ETSU on January 9, 2016 to Support the Dream with Daniel Norris for Jacob’s Nature Park at Sinking Creek – $12,000 was raised from the event that will be used for 100% construction. THANK YOU!
Incredible sponsors kept our spirits going when we got worried: Johnson City News & Neighbor, WJHL, ChemAqua, Inc., ETSU Dept. of Sustainability, Boone Watershed Partnership, Inc., VIPSEEN Magazine
