LOCAL NEWS — Beginning Sept. 25, Tennessee State Parks will host volunteer events through the month of October in support of the Tennessee Serves monthly challenge.

On Monday, September 27 park officials and volunteers will gather at Fairview Campground to help clean up some trees that have blown over in storms. 

“Make sure to dress for work and the weather.  We will meet at the ranger house and work in both directions depending on attendance,” park official stated online.
