Hey Neighbors!

Well, you know that I have to brag on the upcoming Fannie Moffitt Autumn Stomp. First of all, I love the whole idea behind celebrating such a unique figure in our history, second of all, after a two-year COVID hiatus, the stomp is back and bigger than ever. The Altamont Volunteer Fire Department kicks off everything at 9 a.m. with a Car & Semi Truck show in the new courthouse parking area. I can’t wait to see some of those tricked out muscle cars and semi bobtails. I grew up with owner/operators in my family, you sure can glam up those semis with lights and chrome! Christopher Smallwood kicks off the day’s entertainment at 10:30am on the courthouse steps, Highland Worship, Uncle Don Clarke, Cranky Ladies, Wildman Miller square dancing, and gospel singing round out the day. Food and Craft vendors will line up along gorgeous Cumberland St. Stop by the Scruggs building to see the Altamont Heritage Museum, Quilt Show and more. Lastly, the Hat Contest. My cohort Misty has always shined in this event. Her hats over the years have been EPIC. They have different categories, so pull out your favorite old hat or create a new one with your trusty glue gun and a trip to a hobby shop. Embrace eccentricity and creativity!
