Come Celebrate the healthy re-opening of our community!

As restrictions have continued to ease, Local Lion and the Paul H. Broyhill Wellness Center have partnered together to put on a 5k for the High Country community, and to sponsor the Blue Ridge Conservancy! More than just a run, we hope this will serve as a rallying point for our community as we move forward from the trials of the last year, and step into a future that is filled with hope. We hope you join us as we celebrate an organization who maintains much of the land that makes the High Country such a great place to live!
