Thanks to all involved in BBQ contest

-A A +A

My husband and I have just returned home after attending and participating in the annual "Smoke on the Mountain" festival in Galax.
He has judged this event since its inception and we and several of our friends from North Carolina look forward each year to coming to your delightful community!
We would like to thank the chamber of commerce and all other organizations who helped sponsor "Smoke on the Mountain"— the merchants for allowing the main streets to be closed to traffic in order that the barbeque competition could be held in this prime location, the City of Galax for permitting use of the Galax Municipal Building for the hospitality of the judges, and the ambassadors and students of the Interact Club who assisted judges and guests in numerous ways.
Last but certainly not least, a heartfelt "thank you" to the many individuals who give so much of their time and energy each year to ensure the continued success of "Smoke on the Mountain." We especially thank Carlene Poole. Without her tireless efforts and leadership, there probably would be no "Smoke on the Mountain!"
We look forward to visiting your lovely area again next year.
