Residents and staff at Wolfe County Health and Rehabilitation Center enjoyed the Swift Silver Mine Festival Parade in Campton. We even had our own float featured in the parade! We called it, “Simply the Best,” inspired by our KAHCF Facility of the Year Award. Thanks to all the staff that helped with the parade float and assisted residents in town. We would also like to extend our appreciation to the Daniel Boone Transit staff that took two buses of residents to watch the parade. Thank you to the volunteers that helped set up the chairs for our residents, too.
The Swift Silver Mine Festival is an annual event that we look forward to each year. Along with a parade, the festival also features local street vendors, traditional Appalachian music, clogging and square dancing, great food, games for the kids, an exceptional antique and vintage car show, and a gospel music concert. This event is held to honor legend of the lost silver mine. During the Civil War era, this mine was found and abandoned by John Swift.
Wolfe County HRC staff and residents had a great time this year! Maybe next year, we’ll finally find the lost silver mine!
