2018 Christmas Ornament: Reader’s Digest “Nicest Place in America” 2017 Gallatin, Tennessee

Regular price $22.00

All across America, there are places where people are kind and treat each other with dignity and respect, but you might not think so with what you see in the news or read on social media. In 2017, Reader’s Digest magazine sent out the call all across America for nominations for the “Nicest Place in America”. Hundreds of nominations came in from all over the country, and the list was narrowed to ten finalists. Gallatin was among the ten. Thousands of votes were cast, and Gallatin, “a town of Southern charm, a town of giving and charity, a town of faith, prayer and an earnest desire to do better” was voted the “Nicest Place in America” for 2017. The back story is one of true grit, amazing grace, and of a community coming together, or in the words of Pastor Derrick Jackson, “…to do what others feel is impossible.” The award earned Gallatin the cover story for the November 2017 issue of Reader’s Digest magazine.
