Talk explores life and times of Lake Junaluska

A program exploring the history of Lake Juanluska and its influence on Haywood County will be held at 9:30 a.m. on July 11 at the Bethea Welcome Center.

The Junaluska Woman’s Club will host the talk by Ernestine Upchurch called “Remembering Haywood People, Places, and Connections in Lake Junaluska Season.”

One of the many stories that Ernestine will share is the tale of a skydiver who jumped out of a plane over Lake Junaluska as church services dismissed one Sunday. He was able to escape from the prank undetected in a rowboat, but there was a chase. She will also speak about growing up in Haywood County. 828.454.9474
