LOH: Anything else you’d like the readers to know about yourself or living in the Lake Country region?
Kara: I’m thankful. It has been so inspiring to see the small businesses supported and encouraged by the residents of our lake community throughout this past year. Businesses supporting other businesses is something you do not see often enough. Lake Oconee should be proud!
