HistoricUnionCounty.com Announces Winner
We would like to thank everyone who stopped by our booth at the 13th Annual Union County Heritage Festival on Saturday, October 7, 2017. This year our booth included a sign up for our weekly newsletter, as well as, special guest, Shirley McMurtrie. Shirley is a regular contributor on www.HistoricUnionCounty.com. Each week, she shares a story of her life and one of her special recipes. Most of the artwork that accompanies her articles are hand drawn by her. Shirley was there all day to meet and great new friends as they came by. She also sold copies of her latest cookbook, with the proceeds going to her church, Revival Vision Church of God. Additionally, we also sold copies of the Union County TN historian, Bonnie Heiskell Peters’, books, including a signup for her new book “More Tales”, a sequel to “Tales from the Hills and Hollows of East Tennessee.” Bonnie is another regular contributor to www.HistoricUnionCounty.com. Every story she writes brings to life a piece of Union County’s history and with that comes a deeper understanding of Union County and its great citizens.
This year we decided to give something back to those who signed up for our weekly newsletter. Everyone who signed up to receive our newsletter was entered into a drawing to receive their own copy of Betty Bullen’s print, “Coming Home.” We would like to announce that the winner of this limited-edition print dedicated to Union County Veterans and Service Men and Women is……Kathy Ellis. Kathy, you may pick up your copy of this print at the Union County Vendor Mall during their regular business hours.
We want to thank all of our friends who stopped by our booth this year. We had a great time meeting new faces and talking to old friends. We appreciate everyone who supports and contributes to www.HistoricUnionCounty.com. Please remember to like and share our page and weekly posts on Facebook.
