Wild and Wolly!

EOT mem¬≠ber, Mary Jo Brubak¬≠er, spoke to the club about their 42nd Wool¬≠ly Worm Fes¬≠ti¬≠val in North Car¬≠oli¬≠na. In the Amer¬≠i¬≠can North¬≠east, it is believed that if the wool¬≠ly worm has more brown on its body than black, it will be a fair win¬≠ter. If the wool¬≠ly worm has more black than brown, the win¬≠ter will be harsh. Who knew?

The fes­ti­val is a 2 day event being held in Ban­ner Elk. This fam­i­ly event is co-host­ed by the Avery Coun­ty Cham­ber of Com­merce and the Kiwa­nis Orga­ni­za­tion of Ban­ner Elk.They wel­come more than 16,000 peo­ple to the com­mu­ni­ty to make fam­i­ly mem­o­ries and the chance to earn the pres­ti­gious hon­or of pre­dict­ing the high coun­try winter.

The prof¬≠its from the Wool¬≠ly Worm Fes¬≠ti¬≠val sup¬≠port coun¬≠ty-wide projects as well as the chil¬≠dren of Avery County. 

Thank you Mary Jo for shar¬≠ing your won¬≠der¬≠ful event with us!
