Several years ago, a group of people gathered at a very special place - Sweetwater Casino, that iconic restaurant located on the shores of the beautiful Mullica River, located deep in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. Those people shared a common thread: the love of the NJ Pine Barrens and a desire to share that love with others through their particular talent, whether by writing, art, sculpting, music, photography or other artistic skills. Sadly, Sweetwater Casino burned to the ground in 2008, but the group, led by It's a Sign of the Pines founder Linda Stanton, continued to grow, with more and more artisans and countless visitors in attendance at what has become a very special day each year in mid-March. Today, over 70 participants and throngs of visitors take part in this great yearly event that has become a part of New Jersey's Pine Barrens culture.
IT'S A SIGN OF THE PINES is grateful to its sponsors, without which these wonderful events would not be possible! If you would like to become a sponsor, or perhaps make a small donation to the cause, please contact IT'S A SIGN OF THE PINES™ Founder Linda Stanton.
