For the second time in less than a month our little town has been inundated with people from surrounding states. The first time was people flocking to a natural event, and the second is due to people fleeing from one. Both times we've had the opportunity to meet new people and hear their stories. We just met a couple that stumbled upon Highlands when searching for a vacancy, and we were the closest that the could find from south Florida. While the circumstances for their visit could certainly be better, they are glad that they found our mountain sanctuary! Can't fight the appeal of Highlands.
As many of you know, we've been collecting things for the flood victims in Texas. I will find out more details in the next couple days of when the items will leave here, so if you would like to stay up to date on our happenings, like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram. Also sign up for our periodic newsletter through our website.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the people in the path of this beast of a storm, and to everyone still recovering in Texas.
