Canceled or postponed

The Village Quilters will not meet in May. Classes and the June luncheon for newcomers are also canceled. A decision about the June guild meeting will be made at a later date.

Directory being finalized

Loudon County Publishers, which produces The Connection and the News-Herald, is in the process of finalizing information for the Summer 2020 edition of the Tellico Village Directory.

Please send changes for names, addresses, phone numbers (both landlines and cellphones) and email addresses by email to before Friday, May 15. Any changes received after that date can’t be guaranteed to be made in time for the summer edition.

The directory is an “opt-in” publication that will be distributed in late June. For more information, email
