Beware of scam
The National Park Service is investigating an online scam selling fraudulent parking tags to visitors in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Someone posing as the National Park Service is directing people to a website titled “Smokies Park Pass.” This website looks like it belongs to the Great Smoky Mountains Association, but it is not an official website. Please don’t visit or buy parking tags from this website.
New this year, a parking pass is required for visitors stopping for longer than 15 minutes at any overlook, trailhead or recreation spot in the Smokies. Proceeds from the new “Park It Forward” program are used to improve visitor safety, increase park ranger presence and to repair, enhance and maintain public park facilities.

Evening of Art at HCC
The Haywood Community College Foundation is bringing a unique event to Haywood County. The inaugural Evening of Art event on Thursday March 14, 2024, will be held to support the needs of the Professional Craft programs. With live jazz form Asheville Jazz Orchestra, dancing, appetizers, buffet dinner, studio tours and a silent auction, this elegant event will be an added special touch to the spring event calendar for Haywood County.
The Professional Crafts program at Haywood Community College offers degrees, diplomas, and certificates in four mediums to provide students not only with the ability to perfect their craft, but even run or start their own art business. The wood, fiber, clay, and jewelry focus areas are a draw for artists nationwide. The funds raised from the Evening of Art will support field trips, specialty training opportunities and needed supplies to make their artistic creations.
One of the highlights of the evening is the silent auction. Works of art from local artisans such as Margaret Roberts, Olga Dorenko, Lexington Glassworks, Sarah Wells Rolland, Phillip D’Angelo, and Teresa Pennington just to name a few will be open for bidding the night of the event. To get a sneak peek at the silent auction items visit www.haywood.edu/foundation and select Evening of Art. Cocktail dress is preferred.
Link to purchase tickets is HERE. Sixty percent of the ticket price will go directly to the professional crafts programs.
Evening of Art will be held on Thursday, March 14 from 6-9pm in the Sycamore building located on the main campus of Haywood Community College. For more information call 828-627-4544.
