Soak in Roane contest

All summer people had fun Soaking in Roane and sharing their photos on social media or captioned photos that were posted to win prizes.  The $1,000 grand prize was drawn from the winners as well as people attending the John Muir Fest September 9, 2017.  The Soak in Roane prize package included a Jackson Kayak from Uncle Lem's Mountain Outfitters in Knoxville and a weekend stay in an RV at Caney Creek RV Resort in Harriman.  From handmade wall art to gourmet items to Soak in Roane swag - thank you also to our local businesses who donated so many wonderful prizes, allowing us to have one winner per week all summer long!

Thank you to our donors: Uncle Lem's Mountain Outfitters, Caney Creek RV Resort,  Sugarlands Moonshine Distillery, Soaring Eagle Campground, Sophie's Choice, Debb Harper and You Say Tomato.
