It's Fall in East Tennessee!
I don't know how your weather has been lately, but here in East Tennessee we've had an extended summer. But finally, the days are starting to get cooler, the skies are that brilliant autumn blue, and it's time to think about pumpkins, cider, and Carson-Newman happenings.
Football has already started and the Eagles are off to a good start with four games under their belts.
Before we know it, it will be time for Homecoming. October 29 is the date, and the trees should be at their prettiest for a wonderful Mossy Creek Reunion. Make plans to come home to Carson-Newman.

Ricky Skaggs Concert to Benefit
Women of Vision
Women of Vision is very excited about a big event that is happening November 10. Ricky Skaggs has been a long time friend of Carson-Newman and has agreed to do a concert in Knoxville with proceeds going to Women of Vision to fund more projects. Ricky is an icon in the country music world, winner of multiple awards and honors during his long career.
In addition to Ricky, Carson Peters from Piney Flats, Tennessee, is going to be there. Carson often performs with Ricky, but has a following of his own. This incredible 12 year old is a master on the fiddle. He has appeared at the Grand 'Ole Opry several times, on the David Letterman Show, and most recently with Steve Harvey on the TV show Little Big Shots.
