On behalf of FLC’s Board of Directors and staff we hope that you can join us for this year’s Summer Celebration!  Every year, FLC’s Board of Directors, staff, Friends of the Foothills, Corporate Sponsors, and those interested in learning more about the organization get a chance to visit and hear about our project successes and highlights. And, we just enjoy spending time with each other – it’s a party!

Here are a few details about this year’s Celebration:

  • The event is casual dress with offerings of hors d’oeuvres and an open bar.
  • Doug Mills, Videographer of the local television program, “The Heartland Series”, will be on hand to provide his outstanding photography skills and capture our Celebration attendees.  Click here to view event photos from last year.
  • A short presentation from FLC Executive Director, Bill Clabough, will be provided along with a few locally themed door prizes.
  • Holly Hambright’s catering crew and the Pour Guys will take care of guests with a Southern menu and fully stocked bar. While this year’s menu is still being prepared, last year’s menu included Holly’s Famous Candied Bacon, Marblegate Farm Caprese Salad,  Pork & Chicken Sliders, along with assorted desserts, including Thumbprint cookies from Magpies.

Now in our 33rd year of service, FLC has assisted in the preservation of over 100,000 acres of cherished mountains, working farms, and rural landscapes in 38 Tennessee counties and across 6 additional states!  2017 was another banner year for the Conservancy! In addition to relocating our organization out to the 300 acre Harris Farm and adding two staff biologists to the team, FLC preserved close to 15,700 acres! Foothills is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and does not receive any financial assistance from local, state or federal governments. We rely on individual and corporate contributions solely to sustain our organization, land acquisition and stewardship funds.

Net proceeds from this year’s Celebration support our enduring mission to preserve, protect, and enhance the lands of the Southern Appalachian region.
