I am so delighted that Rob wrote about the 75th Anniversary of the
Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the A-C-T today - Sunday Sept. 13.
Celebrations and activities have been going on all year.
On Sept. 2, the park had a rededication celebration, to recommemorate
the dedication of the park by FDR in 1940.
Yes, the Smokies became a park in 1934 but it took FDR six years to find the place.
So, the National Park program "America's Best Idea", though
great, is not the kickoff for the celebration, more like
piggingbacking on our 75th.
Besides Dolly Park sand two songs at the rededication. As Dale Ditmanson,
the Superintendent of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park said,
"Let any other park try to beat that."
