8pm-Closing Live Music: The Brummy Brothers. Bursting on to the scene mid-2012, The Brummy Brothers’ inspiring rhythms, infectious melodies, and undeniable ability to plow through a set with fiery passion and intensity keep them busy with over 100 shows a year up and down the East Coast. The New Jersey natives’ original blend of bluegrass, rock, and improvisation forms a sound and energy that allows them to be found playing anywhere from rock clubs, to folk festivals, to farmers markets. And it’s a good thing, because if one thing is clear, it’s that these guys love to play music. In May 2014 The Brummy Brothers released their debut album “On Our Way” produced by Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth. The album allows the band to share the composite of their time together. The record incorporates harmonizing voices, striking instrumental prowess, and expert arrangement to bring everything together.

Saturday November 7

8pm-Closing Live Music: The Mountain Laurels. The Mountain Laurels are a Celti-lachian band from the High Country of North Carolina. The group performs a blend of Americana, Celtic and folk music typical to the roots culture of Western North Carolina. Instrumentation includes violin (or fiddle depending on if you’re from around here) hammer dulcimer, flute and guitar. This seasoned group of musicians has a repertoire that allows the flexibility to perform as a duo, trio, or full band.

7) Register of Deeds and Veterans Services Officer Initiate Veterans Discount Program

One of the responsibilities of the Register of Deeds office is to record Veterans’ DD214 – Military Discharge papers in Watauga County.  Amy Shook, Watauga County Register of Deeds and April Pope, Watauga County Veterans Services Officer are teaming up to initiate a new program to encourage Veterans to record their DD214.  Our plan is to issue them a Veterans “Thank You For Your Service” Card that makes them eligible to receive discounts or incentives from participating Watauga County businesses when they present their card.  We are asking Watauga County businesses to consider participating in this program as a means of showing continued support and appreciation for our local Veterans.  We certainly understand that some businesses already offer military discounts and we thank you very much for showing your appreciation.

Participating businesses will be listed on the Watauga County Register of Deeds website at www.wataugacounty.org .  All Veterans who come into our office will be given a current listing of those businesses who have agreed to participate in the program.  Upon issuance, the Veteran will be told that they must show the Veterans “Thank You For Your Service” Card in order to receive the discount or incentive.

Please consider adding your business to our list by completing the enclosed form and returning it to us by mail:  Amy J. Shook, Watauga County Register of Deeds, 842 W. King Street, Suite 9, Boone, NC  28607 or email to:  amy.shook@watgov.org.  We will send you a sign to display in your business (if you choose to) showing our Veterans and your customers that you participate in our program that supports Veterans.

Watauga County Business Leaders Form

As a business, you advertise in various ways; why not let us help you advertise with our website and distribution lists?  You will be showing our residents, but most importantly our Veterans, that you appreciate their service to our Country.  A discount or incentive for the Veteran is all we are asking from you.  We will advertise your business FREE of CHARGE.

“Thank You For Your Service” is scheduled to begin on November 11, 2015, with a kickoff event scheduled for November 10th.

Thank you in advance for your support of our Veterans!

Amy J. Shook – Register of Deeds, Watauga County

April Pope – Veterans Services Officer, Watauga County
