Great Smoky Mountains Association had its best year ever for both sales and membership income in 2016, Executive Director Laurel Rematore reported this week, allowing the association to contribute more than $2 million in support to Great Smoky Mountains National Park last year.“We continued our focus on retail sales, publications and customized product development, and membership development, throughout the year,” she said. “And just when we thought we’d end the year with no major events to mention – other than record-setting visitation – we experienced the late November wildfires that shut down the park for several days and destroyed nearly 2,500 structures in Gatlinburg.”GSMA immediately responded to the tragedy and successfully raised more than $200,000 from GSMA members and others to assist park employees, volunteers, and affiliates who had lost their homes, she continued.Despite the wildfires, some 11,312,785 people visited the Smokies in 2016, which was likely influenced by low fuel prices, an improving economy, and the “Find Your Park” multimedia campaign to mark the NPS Centennial.
