Thanks for making Fire and Ice a success

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.
