  • - For 2016, TC-MAC is conducting our fourth annual Wreaths Across America campaign, for Mountain Home National Cemetery. The Remembrance ceremony is set for December 17, at 12:00 Noon…rain or shine…or snow.
    By sponsoring a wreath, you are saying, “Thank you”, to those veterans who rest in all of those far-flung cemeteries. “Thank you”, because they answered their country’s call; they sacrificed…and many died…to save you…to save us…and our way of life.
    We hope that you will join with us to Remember, and Honor those veterans.
    For only $15, we can honor one of those veterans with a Remembrance Wreath. We ask that you help to make this campaign successful by visiting click for details where you can download a sponsorship form. Each wreath is important. Very important.

    - Dates and Times Vary. See Website. Camelot is a musical by Alan Jay Lerner (book and lyrics) and Frederick Loewe (music). It is based on the King Arthur legend as adapted from the T. H. White novel The Once and Future King. The story of the marriage of England's King Arthur to Guinevere is played out amid the pageantry of Camelot. The plot of illegitimate Mordred to gain the throne and Guinevere's growing attachment to Sir Lancelot, whom she at first abhors, threaten to topple Arthur and destroy his round table of knights who would use their might for right. This musical includes favorites such as “The Lusty Month of May”, “If Ever I Would Leave You”, “How to Handle a Woman” and many more!

  • - Matt Barr is a local Kingsport artist and photographer. His photography show, currently displayed in City Hall, is called Lethal Garden. His photography exhibit will run through October 12. All of his work is available for purchase.

    “Lethal Garden is a series that I began in 2015 to visually explore some of Mother Nature's most notorious lethal plants. Many of them grow all around us. In our backyards and gardens, on our playgrounds and farms. Most of them are aesthetically pleasing and are prized by landscapers for their extraordinary visual appeal. Oddly, others are grown for consumption as food or medicine. A small minority of them (some of the more sinister varieties), have historically been used in homicides, suicides, and executions…I have tremendous amount of fascination, curiosity, and respect for these plants. Working with them is a delicate dance with mortality which makes the process of taking these pictures all the more profound.” –Matt Barr

  • - The Fulldome Film Society, together with Kiev Planetarium and Atmasfera360 Center, is proud to present the unique fulldome show dedicated to a breakthrough discovery and space mission to the core of the comet 67P.



    Join comet discoverer Klim Churyumov in the story about the origins of the Solar System and life on Earth. Meet the challenges of a 10-year-long mission with the “Rosetta” spacecraft and the “Philae” lander. Become the first one to find oneself on the comet surface!



    Launching in March 2004 and arriving at comet 67P on August 6, 2014, Rosetta is the first mission in history aimed at making a successful rendezvous with a comet, tag along as the comet orbits the sun, and then deploy a lander to the surface of the comet for further exploration and study.



    The show includes updates on this groundbreaking mission and what we have learned, plus an interactive activity designed to demonstrate the difficulty in landing craft onto the surface of the comet. “Rosetta” also includes a tour of the current night sky.



    “Rosetta” can be seen beginning Saturday, September 3, and will serve as the featured show through December 31. Show times are Tuesday thru Friday at 4:00 p.m., and on Saturday and Sunday at 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $5.00 per person and can be purchased at the gift shop located in the Nature Center.

    - Come wander in the wonder of the natural world! Be prepared to be “wowed” by the amazing discoveries in our nearby natural places.

    Beginning on September 8, 2016, YOUR State Park will be offering weekly nature rambles. Each Thursday afternoon at 3 PM you can come along for an hour or so of nature exploration or local history discovery. We will continue these “W.O.W.W.” walks until mid-November.

    We might take a short walk on a park trail, wander through a park meadow, visit a park stream, examine life on the “tiny side,” or wait quietly for wildlife to come to us. Or, we might enjoy a demonstration of local history or folklore. Each nature ramble or local history demonstration will be led by one of our Park Rangers, and will be a great chance for nature enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy, experience and learn from nature nearby.

    Each “W.O.W.W.” ramble will meet at 3 PM at the Warriors’ Path pool entrance. Wear comfortable walking shoes and outdoor clothing suitable for the weather. And bring along your curiosity!
