Young Journalist

I just had to write and tell you that my daughter, Gracie (above, 9 years old), LOVES your magazine. She looks forward to it coming in the mail every month. Her favorite thing is finding the flag. When she’s at home playing, she sets up a desk area and a computer and pretends she runs the magazine, making up stories and doing artwork, etc. I love watching her be so imaginative. May be something that turns into a career some day. Thank you for being such a great inspiration to my daughter and for showing us all the greatness that our beautiful Tennessee has to offer.

I continue to enjoy your articles very much.

I’m just wondering why I haven’t been receiving The Tennessee Magazine here lately. I have always gotten the magazine on time in the past. I’m not sure why I haven’t been receiving it.
