Fantasy of Trees 2013: Calling All Members

Hi All Knox EGA Members,

Remember to work on an ornament for our Smoky Mountain Winter designer tree! We also want to donate items to sell in the Hearth and Home Store. Keep working away! Thanksgiving is only 6 months away, and we want to help East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.
