It's a beautiful, sunny day in WiLCo! We spent a bit of it making sure the #MCITTA Veterans group had everything they needed to enjoy their picnic lunch at the beautiful @cellar53winery before a fantastic tasting and tour. And of course, we couldn't leave without showing some love to our official doggy welcoming committee - Oakley and Sugar!
We brag on our in-office team all the time, but we don’t brag on our @tnvacation team enough. Thanks to our Middle Tennessee Division Manager, Sara Beth Urban for coming out to visit our “stomping grounds” today to celebrate #nationaltourismweek
