Unexpected Gifts Make Roanoke Summer a Blessing
Unexpected Gifts Make Roanoke Summer a Blessing

My summer in Roanoke was my first experience living in a small town. I hail from the suburbs of a large capital city, Nashville, and our communal character has always been determined by our relationship to this city. We may technically be distinct, but I have always felt that many view our town as an extension rather than its own entity.
