Jonesborough Yarn Exchange Presents “May I Serve You?”

JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. – Jonesborough is known for its hospitality and dedication to providing service. This month, the Jonesborough Yarn Exchange celebrates the stories of people who work in support of all the restaurants, shops, and activities in the region with their show “May I Serve You?” 7 p.m. April 23 at the International Storytelling Center.

From the town’s earliest beginnings with David Deaderick’s store providing everything from pantaloons to spectacles to razors, cloth, and other sundries, Jonesborough has strived to provide for the needs and wants of the community. The Deaderick’s store in the early 1800’s along with the Chester Inn provided for the needs. Other places provided for the “wants”, like the Andrew Jackson Tavern, Buddy Gresham’s Hotel and store (which during the 1930’s was the only place to purchase bubble gum), as well as Jarman’s Shoes and Dobyns-Taylor, up through today’s innovative and service-oriented people like Deb Kruse at the Corner Cup Coffee Shop.

Joining the cast this month as musical guest will be regional favorite, Aaron Jaxon, playing his original, contemporary music.
