Dear Blowing Rock Homeowners,
The community celebrated Jerry Burn’s Day hosted by the Blowing Rock Historical Society at the Blowing Rock Art & History Museum (BRAHM) with Mayor Charlie Sellers as the speaker. The event celebrates the life of former, longtime editor of the Blowing Rocket from 1965 to 2009.
Charlie’s slides can be viewed at the following link that tells a rich story of Jerry Burn’s life, the Robbins Family and the development of tourism in Blowing Rock. https://www.brcivic.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/Jerry-Burns-Day-Presentation-June-2022.pdf
