Dollywood’s Mission to Serve Others

By | 2017-08-04T15:01:25+00:00 August 4th, 2017|Trip Planning|0 Comments

Editor’s note: This guest post is written by Joey Buck, Dollywood’s Chaplain, about the theme park’s value and mission of serving our community. Dollywood doesn’t have a lot of jobs. Jobs can be boring. Jobs often have little significance. Jobs are limited and finite. Jobs come to an end. It’s not a job that [...]

Growing up in East Tennessee, summer has always been synonymous with long days by the pool, lake or local swimming hole: find your nearest body of water and park yourself for a refreshing day of aquatic fun. This summer, I’m even more determined to have a game plan for staying cool. Why? By the [...]

Come Back to the Smokies

Recovery. It’s the process of getting back to normal. In all things, God has a plan and that plan is beautifully illustrated in a new message from Dolly Parton. I was lucky enough to be in the studio the day Dolly sat down to communicate her heartfelt thoughts about the November fires in the [...]
