Like you, we watched in horror and with sadness as wildfires devastated Gatlinburg and destroyed Wild Hall and Hughes Hall at Arrowmont. We will keep everyone informed as we determine how this devastating fire will affect Fiber Forum 2017. Meanwhile, please join us in keeping those who are faced with the clean up and rebuilding of their lives, their community and Arrowmont in our thoughts and prayers.
