I don’t think anyone could fully keep abreast of all the happenings at Smith Mountain Lake and surrounding counties, because it seems there are always interesting things going on in our neck of the woods. When I find tidbits that might be worthy of note I like to pass them on. Check out the items of interest below.
We love to hear from our readers. Send us an email if you know of things going on around the Lake that others would like to know.
