Town honors Joe Shannon with resolution

Joe Shannon was recently awarded the Order of the Long Leaf Pine by the state of North Carolina. Boone Town Council issued a resolution honoring Shannon for his contributions. 
Shannon founded Music in the Mountains in 1994, which later became Mountain Home Music in 1997. Mountain Home Music became a nonprofit organization in 2003. Shannon was recognized in the resolution for helping to establish Boone and the High Country as a destination for cultural tourism and for supporting local and regional musicians by showcasing them in his concert series.
