Here is list of the top new year’s resolution items, and how Jonesborough can help with your goals!

1. Health goals

  • Use walking trails in Jonesborough! The area offers varying degrees of difficulty hiking trails in the 100-acre Persimmon Ridge Park, just one mile from downtown. If it’s a stroll you’re looking for, take advantage of the walking trails in and around downtown Jonesborough. 
  • If you’re over the age of 50, you can join the Jonesborough Senior Center. They have a gym and fitness classes. Learn more here.

2. Spend more time with family

  • There are many events throughout the year in downtown Jonesborough that are family friendly. These events range from St. Paddy’s Day to Jonesborough Days to Christmas in Olde Jonesborough.
  • Take a trip to Jonesborough together! It doesn’t have to be for an event. Visit any weekend of the year!

3. Learn a new skill

  • Take a class at the McKinney Center, Jonesborough’s art center. They have a variety of classes from pottery to guitar lessons.

4. Help out with the community

  • Volunteer for a Jonesborough event. We have many throughout the year! Information here.
  • Donate to the JAMA Food Pantry. The McKinney Center is hosting a food drive for the JAMA Food Pantry until Jan. 16.

5. Focus on mental health

  • Get into yoga this year! We host yoga in the park every Sunday in the summer in Storytelling Park from 4-5 p.m. McLeod Organics also hosts yoga in their store throughout the year!
  • Attend a production! Give your mind a break and focus on a Jonesborough Repertory Theatre play, We Did It Together an original Jonesborough play hosted by the McKinney Center, or storytelling through the International Storytelling Center.

We can help with your New Year’s Resolution!
