“I am delighted to serve as the honorary chair for this outstanding event in support of the work of the Friends of South Cumberland, on behalf of Tennessee’s largest and most biologically significant state park,” Haskell said. “Even as the park is growing, daunting challenges face those who care for it, interpret its amazing natural assets, and help provide visitors with an enlightening and safe park experience. The Goldenrod Gala is a wonderful opportunity for those who care about South Cumberland State Park to show their support and give back to an area that has enriched so many of our lives.
Please join me in generously supporting this important event.”
