There were smiles, but there was sadness as the Boone Town Council honored Joe Shannon for his years of work in the music community of the High Country.  The founder of Mountain Home music ‘read’ into the record of the Tuesday night meeting by Mayor Andy Ball. Then Shannon, who is suffering serious health issues, said his good-bye, “35 years ago I moved to Boone.  I didn’t know one person—I didn’t know a soul.  Best move I ever made. So here I am. Tomorrow I’m leaving to go to Florida to live with my brother, so I’m leaving this community that I love. Thank you all so much.”
