Editor’s note: For many years, Johnny Vardeman, retired editor of The Times, would write his annual “’mater sammich” column as homegrown tomatoes started coming in during the summer. “’Maters and Music” will be the theme for a tomato sandwich event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 23 at the Byron Herbert Reece Farm and Heritage Center one mile north of Vogel State Park, 9 miles south of Blairsville on U.S. 129. Tomato sandwiches will be served free, and mountain-grown tomatoes will be available for purchase. The Byron Herbert Reece Society is sponsoring the event to let people know more about the farm and heritage center and to enjoy tomato sandwiches.
