And The Winners Are…

2014-family-favourite-winnerMost people have a favorite food, a favorite color and maybe even a favorite sports team (Go Cats!)

And many of us also have favorite restaurants, favorite health-care providers, favorite veterinarians and even favorite field trips for our kids.

We asked for your nominations in the spring and then over the summer more than 1,200 of you voted in our fifth annual Family Favorites Survey, earning a chance to win a two-night getaway for a family of four at Wilderness at the Smokies.
