This year when approximately 200 senior citizens in Roane and Loudon counties receive a nutritious home-delivered meal from the Senior Nutrition program at Mid-East Community Action Agency, they will receive something else: a small gift that means a lot.
The Operation Holiday Cheer program delivers a holiday package containing useful items for each person.
Rock Creek Campground, part of the Obed Wild and Scenic River, should soon reopen after construction activities.
The campground was scheduled to be closed through Nov. 21 for construction of a new comfort station that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and is accessible to mobility-impaired visitors.
Campsites were also to be upgraded with new picnic tables, campfire grill rings, and wildlife-proof food storage lockers.
