        The Jackson County (N.C.) Chamber of Commerce published its 13th annual “Our Town” magazine on Jan. 30. The 44-page community guide shines a spotlight on the many wonderful businesses, events and communities of Jackson County.

        “We are excited to release this year’s Our Town magazine,” said Jackson County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Julie Spiro. “Our staff works tirelessly on this annual product and we are extremely proud of this publication.”

        Four years ago, the chamber brought publishing the magazine in house, for the purpose of using the additional revenue for July 4 fireworks and Concerts on the Creek.

        “We distribute this publication all across the U.S., each year through information requests submitted via our website and phone calls,” added Spiro. “We also keep regional welcome centers, hotels and restaurants stocked with this publication and hand them out in our visitor centers in Sylva and Dillsboro, plus five kiosks scattered across the county.”

    Highlighted features inside this year’s edition include:
        * Detailed looks at all of Jackson County’s communities
        * County statistics and important contact information
