    Did someone say CAKE? At Neyland Stadium? On February 28?  Yes!


    It’s time for The Great Cake Bake, East Tennessee’s premier cake decorating contest!

    This annual event is a fundraiser for our friends at Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library of Knox County.

    “The foundation of democracy is an educated electorate. When the economy is down, it is all the more vital that we the people have access to information, education, news…and now in modern times the internet…Libraries do that. For everyone.”
