Jonesborough Progressive Dinner

The Storytelling Resource Place will be a stop on the Jonesborough Progressive Dinner, a tradition in our storytelling town. The many visitors will see the historic Slemons House "all dressed up" for Christmas thanks to the help of good friends like Wayne and Mary Lawrence, Tom and Karen Hitchcock, Karen Newell, John Bolt, Hope Glassmyer, Mattie Mullins, and Teri Simmons. Couldn't have done it without them!! The display of storytelling resources will feature "The Light of the World" with nativity scenes from all over the world. One story told many different ways. Our many Christmas stories will be shown for visitors to be reminded of their own favorites from years gone by. 

Stop by and see the decorations.
Holiday hours will be 1-4 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
