Thanks for making Fire and Ice a success

Written by 

To the Editor:

On behalf of the Haywood County Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank The Smoky Mountain News management and staff for their incredible support of the 2011 FIRE and Ice Winterfest. Due to the informational articles and, of course, the paid advertising, this event was a tremendous success.

The event was a much-appreciated respite from the snow-induced confinement of the previous weeks and was communicated to the local population by your newspaper. The 2011 Fire and Ice Winterfest has for the first time established Haywood County as not just a summer destination but a winter destination as well. This can have a tremendous positive impact for local businesses.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
