Where in Carolina Country is This?

The June “Where Is This” photo by Blue Ridge Mountain EMC member Aaron Shaki features a wall with decorated, glaze-fired bricks located at the Watauga County Public Library on Queen Street in Boone. Shaki explained that children and adults submitted ideas and drawings, and Shaki’s, Vicki, mother painted the ideas on the bricks. The bricks were used to build a permanent wall for the library. Several readers noted that the mosaic fundraising campaign sold 800 bricks and raised much-needed funds for future library programs and building additions. As a weekly library patron, five-year-old Joziah Campbell immediately recognized the illustrated brick wall. The winning entry chosen at random from all correct submissions came from Mike Stanley of Vilas, a Blue Ridge Energy member.
