Haywood Garden Tour was a great success

To the Editor:

We are writing to express our gratitude for your excellent coverage of the 2010 Haywood County Garden Tour. Your full page spread was really appreciated. Our attendance was up over 15 percent from 2008 thanks, we’re sure, to your support.

The Garden Tour is the primary fundraiser for the Horticulture Program of the Haywood County Extension Agency. The Horticulture Program provides advice and support to local area farmers and home gardeners. In these days of state and county budget cuts, the funds raised by the Garden Tour are sorely needed.

At our inception 20 years ago, we chose to be different. Unlike other news organizations, we made the decision to provide in-depth, regional reporting free to anyone who wanted access to it. We don’t plan to change that model. Support from our readers will help us maintain and strengthen the editorial independence that is crucial to our mission to help make Western North Carolina a better place to call home. If you are able, please support The Smoky Mountain News.
