Come back and visit us, of course! Truth be told, much of the needed recovery resources have long since been provided – anyone who ever doubted the charity of the United States of America during Christmas only needs to look to the incredible outpouring of support we received from all over the country.
No, seriously, we’ve had many people who set up GoFundMe accounts for thousands of dollars and a majority of them got fully funded. We’ve had many benefit concerts and telethons, some of which hosted by none other than Miss Dolly Parton herself, and we’ve had dozens and dozens of donation centers set up across Sevier County that had to tell people to stop donating because they were getting more support than they could hold!
It was the true spirit of Christmas, alive and well in the Smokies.
Now the only thing we ask for is you! Come on back to Gatlinburg and vacation with us this year! The fires barely touched downtown Gatlinburg and just about everything you want to see here in town is still operating as normal as it ever did.
