The Banner Elk Chamber would like to send out to Ron Johnson our best wishes for a happy, healthy and well deserved retirement. Ron has been the reporter, photographer, editor and publisher of the Banner Elk Magazine for the past three years. He has shared with people across the country, and even out of the country, the day to day events, photos, stories and weather of our little "one stoplight town" in the mountains of North Carolina. He has kept our part time residents in the loop, made some of our local residents famous, and with his delightful stories and vivid photos encouraged visitors to travel to Banner Elk to see for themselves this quaint mountain village. The Banner Elk Magazine will be sorely missed. We wish Ron and his pal Sugar success in their travels, happiness in their future endeavors and hope they will stop into the Chamber once in a while to fill us in as they check off their bucket list.
Our Best Wishes
The Banner Elk Chamber of Commerce
